Hartland Land Trust is pleased to sponsor historian and author Marty Podskoch for a fascinating talk on the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC)

1 PM Saturday, October 1, 2016 at the Wilderness School, site of former CCC Camp Robinson, on Rte 20, East Hartland. Look for the blue, green and yellow balloons!

Our collaborator the Hartland Historical Society (HHS) will provide a slide show and artifact display from Camp Robinson.
Camp Robinson

Following  the talk:
  • 2:00 PM  Refreshments
  • 2:30 PM  HHS membership meeting
  • 3:00 PM  Tom Dyer, former founding director of the Wilderness School (WS) and former HLT director, will lead an easy hike (.5 to 1 mile) of the property and other State Forest areas used by CCC with options to go off trail to see foundations or remain on the trail.  The hike is easily modified for children and the elderly. We will see an old brick kiln area, dump, foundations and the stone WS administration building. The new WS Director Gene Marchand will participate to be available for any questions that arise regarding the WS.

Available for sale:

A big thank you to  HHS for collaborating with us and to the Wilderness School for providing the venue.


Hoping to see you all there!
