FREE Public Showing of the DVD, The Work of 1000, Wood Public Library, Canandaigua
We are pleased to bring to the Finger Lakes region a showing of this DVD, highlighting the important work of Marion Stoddart, one of the Founding Mothers of Women Outdoors.
Work of 1000 is a documentary about the parallel journey of two characters, one a young woman discouraged at her future as a suburban housewife, the other a river - once beautiful and teeming with wildlife - now a hopeless, toxic sludge pit. Chronicling an important episode in U.S. environmental history, this inspirational story examines the human side of acclaimed environmental pioneer Marion Stoddart. Marion Stoddart proved that with vision and commitment, an "ordinary" person can accomplish extraordinary things. This film will reveal the secrets of her success and her methods for inspiring change.
