Mount San Jacinto State Park's 75th birthday

Get ready to party: on June 13, 2009, Mount San Jacinto State Park celebrates the 75th anniversary of the development of the park by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) . It's worth planning a trip around.  The CCC built  the Idyllwild campground, warden’s residence, and several historic structures still in use today.
There will be children’s games and activities, guest speakers, a book signing by a local author. Historic displays of “Park Rustic” architecture and stonework, and original footage will celebrate the work of the CCC.  An evening campfire program, “A Tribute to the Civilian Conservation Corps”, with hot cocoa and cider will top off the day’s events.
