Jan. 11 Big Muddy Speaker Series in Kansas City

"The Missouri River: Then, Now and in the Future?"

The historic Missouri River was a completely different river system than what we have today. From a meandering, unpredictable muddy stream, we have reshaped the Mighty Mo into a more stable (but still unpredictable) swift channel.

Neil Bass, biologist with the Army Corps of Engineers, will show how we have moved from there to here and where we may be going. All the major programs affecting the Missouri River will be touched upon, including the Pick Sloan Plan, the Bank Stabilization and Navigation Project, and the Missouri River Recovery Program and all of its components.

Wednesday, January 11
6 p.m. Social Hour
7 p.m. Presentation
At  Hickok's Grill
528 Walnut St. - Kansas City, MO (in the River Market),
(816) 472-0161

In the early 1960's, Marion Stoddart moved near the Nashua River in Massachussetts. The Nashua had become the dumping ground for a series of paper plants and was one of the most polluted rivers in the country.

Over the course of the next two decades, Stoddart led a citizen crusade to clean up the Nashua River, working from the local grassroots up to the federal level to guarantee a swimmable river.

It's an inspiring story of the difference one person can make when they decide to solve a problem and won't take "no" for an answer.

"Work of 1000" is an award-winning 30 minute film about Stoddart's story. Our friends at Missouri River Communities Network are hosting a screening of the film, along with a personal presentation from Marion Stoddart.

Come meet this inspiring woman and share in her story!
