NRWA and The Work of 1000 Civic Engagement Program have teamed up to offer free educational programs at 10 public libraries in the Nashua River watershed. Each program will include a screening of the documentary film, Marion Stoddart: The Work of 1000. This award-winning documentary, created by Pepperell, MA resident Susan Edwards, tells the inspiring story of how Marion, a self-described ordinary woman in Groton, Massachusetts, was able to accomplish the extraordinary in mobilizing the clean-up of the Nashua River. After the film, Marion will speak about what local citizens can do to help complete a vision of permanently protected greenway along the Nashua River and its tributaries, and there will be a Q&A discussion about NRWA greenway programs. An NRWA staff person will also be on site to discuss current NRWA programs and activities.
