North Higgins Lake State Park is home to the Michigan Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Museum.  During the 1930s and '40s, this was the site of Michigan first tree nursery - trees grown at this site were used to replant forests across northern Michigan.  CCC workers in Michigan also built roads and dams, constructed state and national park buildings, fought fires, and more.  The museum is open daily from now through Labor Day (September 5th).  For more information, visit the Michigan History Center website.
