The film, The Work of 1000, shares Marion’s exhilarating story of her work to clean up the Nashua River, once one of the 10 most polluted rivers in America.
The Work of 1000 is a 30-minute documentary followed by a personal discussion with the film’s central figure, citizen activist Marion Stoddart – provides a gripping profile of an ordinary person who realized her power to make a difference.
Marion will speak about what local citizens can do to help complete the vision of the Nashua River Watershed Association’s Nashua River Greenway Program, which aims to permanently protect a corridor along both banks of the Nashua River, its main tributaries, and its smaller streams.
Northern New England is full of reminders of past lives: stone walls, old foundations, a century-old lilac struggling to survive as the forest reclaims a once-sunny dooryard. What forces shaped settlement, and later abandonment, of these places? Adair Mulligan explores the rich story to be discovered in what remains behind. See how one town has set out to create an inventory of its cellar holes, piecing together the clues in the landscape. Such a project can help landowners know what to do if they have archaeological sites on their land and help stimulate interest in a town’s future through its past.
Adair Mulligan has a runaway curiosity about the natural and cultural history of northern New England. Executive director of the Hanover Conservancy, she served for 20 years as Conservation Director of the Connecticut River Joint Commissions.
