The Architecture of Dayspring Nature Preserve
Dayspring Nature Preserve is a 23.264-acre, heavily wooded greenbelt park along Watters Branch Creek.
Park amenities are designed as a tribute to the craftsmanship of the Civilian Conservation Corps of the Great Depression era.
From the depths of the Great Depression came one of the greatest investments in the American landscape. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal work programs. It enlisted unemployed men to work on land conservation and park development projects.
