Common Cause / 30
After Vassar, Elizabeth Cushman Titus Putnam '55
founded the Student Conservation Association (SCA)
to care for neglected public lands. Eric Beringause '80
describes his participation in SCA as a "transformative"
experience. With assistance by Michael Prior '86, he
paid it forward, helping to secure funds to support the
work of a Navajo student crew at Canyon de Chelly
National Monument, located on tribal land in Arizona.
