“What I wanted to do was make a difference in world, which is what we all want to do, and what we can do.” - Marion Stoddart

This award-winning, half-hour documentary film tells the story of Marion Stoddart, a self-described "ordinary woman" who organized a massive effort to clean up the Nashua River, once one of the ten most polluted rivers in America.

Forty years after the passage of the landmark Clean Water Act legislation, The Work of 1000 presents a gripping profile of an ordinary person who realized her power to make a difference.

After the film, David Deen of the Connecticut River Watershed Council will speak on the challenges still faced by the Connecticut & Ashuelot Rivers and what "ordinary citizens like us can do to help."
