Monday, February 28, 2011 7:00 pm
Newton Free Library, Druker Auditorium

Join us for this screening of “The Work of 1000,” which focuses on noted environmentalist Marion Stoddart, who began as a member of the local League of Women Voters, and became the force that brought the horribly polluted Nashua River back from the abyss. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on leadership with Fitchburg Mayor Lisa Wong, Charles River Watershed’s Bob Zimmerman, moderated by Lois Levin, Green Decade and LWVN member, with special guest Rita Barron. Mayor Setti Warren will introduce the film, which illustrates that collaboration among environmental advocates and local government leaders is essential to protecting our natural resources and mitigating climate change.

Co-sponsored by the LWVN Environmental Committee

Tea will be served at this event. Please bring your own mug!
