The Higgins Lake Nursery and CCC Museum, located at North Higgins Lake State Park, tells the story of Michigan’s first state tree nursery and the role of Michigan’s Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression. The nursery, established in 1903 to reforest northern Michigan after decades of clear-cutting and forest fires, produced millions of pine seedlings every year, which were planted across the state and nation. In the 1930s, the site became home to hundreds of young men enrolled in the federal Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps.
