KELT is recognizing the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act with Marion Stoddart, citizen leader and organizer for clean water
August 15th at 7:00pm at the Winter Street Center in Bath
The event will provide a concise overview of the programs and properties offered by the regional conservation organization dedicated to the protection of the land, water, and wildlife of the Kennebec Estuary.
After the brief meeting, KELT welcomes citizen leader and organizer for clean water, Marion Stoddart in recognition of the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act. Water restoration and protection was brought to the national light by legendary Maine Senator, Edmund Muskie, and championed by Stoddart on the community-level in New England.
Stoddart advocated for the passage of the Massachusetts Clean Water Act, petitioned the Federal government for funds to fight pollution, and mobilized her community to restore the Nashua River- named, in the 1960s, as one of the 10 most polluted rivers in the country. Stoddart’s lifetime work as a grassroots organizer and coalition builder provides inspiration to individuals looking to create positive change in their communities.
The 30 minute documentary, Marion Stoddart: The Work of 1000, will be screened. There will be time for discussion and questions with Stoddart after the film.
Please RSVP to this event by emailing Becky Kolak or calling 442-8400.
Winter Street Center is located at 880 Washington St. in Bath. On street parking is available.
