Trine civil engineers clean up CCC dams at Pokagon

April 11, 2023

Over the first weekend in April, members of Trine University’s student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers completed a service project to clear brush and trees from stone dams at Pokagon State Park constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The park hopes to feature the dams by making them more visible from the hiking path. Members of the CCC, which provided jobs during the Great Depression, were stationed at Pokagon between 1934 and 1942 and completed many projects at the park.
