History at High Noon—Roosevelt’s Tree Army in Florida, Museum of Florida History

Time: 12:00 p.m.

By the 1930s, millions of acres of Florida land were devastated by clear-cutting, poor farming practices, and phosphate mining. Many small farmers were destitute, and unemployment was widespread. Senior curator Michelle Hearn discusses the role of the Civilian Conservation Corps in massive reforestation efforts, the establishment of the Florida state park system, and infrastructure projects. About 40,000 young men would serve in Florida’s CCC units, allowing them to support their families during the Depression.

Virtual 2nd Saturday: The Yamato Colony, Museum of Florida History

Time: 11:00 a.m.

The Yamato Colony was a unique community founded at the turn of the twentieth century in southern Florida. Hoping to bring in new farming methods, and widely supported by government and railroad officials, a group of Japanese settlers established the community in what is now Boca Raton, Florida. To commemorate Asian American and Pacific Islander Month, we will be looking into the history and legacy of this Japanese community in Florida. We will also learn about and create origami Koinobori (carp streamers) in honor of Japan’s Children’s Day.

Virtual History at High Noon: Forest Capital: A History of Taylor County Florida, Museum of Florida History

Time: 12:00 p.m. to conclusion

Taylor County lies in the heart of Florida's Big Bend, a section of the Gulf still relatively untouched by large-scale development. Don't let its rural character fool you, however--the county's history is packed with as much excitement as you'll find in any other part of the state. In this program, local author Dr. Josh Goodman will discuss some highlights from his recently-published book, Forest Capital: A History of Taylor County Florida, looking especially at some unique aspects of Taylor County's past that are also crucial to understanding the broader history of Florida.
