The Civilian Conservation Corps built a side camp at Keanakolu on Hawaii. The CCC worked in forested areas in the vicinity of this camp, and their work typically included projects like tree planting; truck, foot and horse trail construction; construction of foot bridges; installation of fences; seed collection; erosion control and construction of check dams; building shelter houses; “elimination of undesirable animals” [presumably invasive species]; “eradication of exotic plants”; installation of pipe lines and telephone lines; camp ground development.
