Conserving Lands, Transforming Lives: A Vermonter’s View of the Student Conservation Association
Feb 11 2020 • Time: 5:30pm-7:30pm For the Family
Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Elizabeth Cushman Titus Putnam, the Founding President of the Student Conservation Association. More than 60 years ago, with America’s national parks in danger of being “loved to death,” the Student Conservation Association (SCA) formed to help protect overwhelmed public lands and provide young people with the benefits of hands-on service and experience. Today, as climate change poses urgent, worldwide risks and a growing segment of our youth suffer from “nature-deficit disorder,” this remarkable organization with nearly 100,000 alumni is forging powerful connections between young people and the great outdoors to ensure a new generation will value and help preserve our natural world, and to show how early stewardship can spark a constellation of individual skills leading to lifelong leadership and success. Registration is $18 in advance or $22 at the door. For more information or to register, please call our office at 802-867-0111 or visit www.greenmtnacademy.org.
