Roosevelt started the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1933. His influence was the great Dust Bowl, which occurred in the Midwest United States.The goal of this organization was for young unmarried men and women to help in the re-developing and further conservation of natural resourcers during the Great Depression. The contributors did activities like planting trees, improving national parks, and reduycing soil erosion.

The Blue Ridge Parkway (1936) was arguably Roosevelt's greatest accomplishment. It was a brand new highway built to provide jobs for peopl but not forgetting about the environment. In fact, it runs right through the Great Smoky Mountains right here in North Carolina.

Roosevelt was naturally both a Conservationist and a Preservationist, as his goal was to put the economy and environment of America back together to end the depression.

In 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt became US President. Seeing as how this was right at the time of the Great Depression, and Roosevelt had a long term interest in resource management, he promptly got to work.
