    • "Greenway Heroes: Profiles In Land Conservation" (FineCut)


      from Susan Edwards Added 45 0 0

      This is the NEARLY completed 10-minute film spotlighting four people in the Nashua River watershed and why they chose to conserve their land for the public good, forever. The four "greenway heroes" include: Tom Jarvela, Leigh Hudson and her son Christopher Zins, and Harley Holden. We also hear from citizen leader and Nashua River advocate, Marion Stoddart. BACKGROUND In the 1960s the Nashua River was declared one of the 10 most polluted rivers in the United States. Years of industrial waste, local dumping, and neglect threatened to remove this river from our lives forever. Around that time, housewife Marion Stoddart moved to the area with her family, so close to the river they could smell its noxious fumes. Looking for deeper purpose to her life, she took on the biggest challenge she could find—cleaning up the Nashua. Marion Stoddart organized a massive citizen effort to rescue the river. She lobbied successfully for legislation, including the landmark Massachusetts Clean Waters Act. She petitioned the Federal government for millions of dollars of promised funds to fight the pollution—and won. Her dramatic success in mobilizing the community showed people that change was possible, even though many had lost hope. The Nashua River is now an internationally recognized environmental success story and a locally celebrated natural resource. Yet, as Marion reminds us, "The work will never be done, the river could go back to being as bad as it was. We will always need watchdogs and stewards." This film was created to support Marion's unwavering resolve to complete a greenway along the Nashua and its tributaries. "Together — the river, with its protective greenway, would provide a corridor for wildlife to move; it would provide natural flood storage and a buffer from pollution; and it would be a place where people could come and enjoy being next to the river, in the river, or on the river for education and recreation." ~ Marion Stoddart
