In the 1960s, Stoddart took it upon herself to clean up the Nashua River, one of the most polluted in the nation. After organizing a large community effort and pushing for legislation of the Clean Water Act, the river is now clean.

The film is a biography featuring Stoddart’s journey to save the Nashua River and her lifelong commitment to grassroots movements.

“Marion Stoddart is an inspiring woman, and I look forward to her coming to the university,” said Eric Olson, University of Wisconsin Extension Lakes director.
