New England Spring Retreat and Study Tour 2011 - Photos

Posted by Erin Lloyd on Wednesday, April 20 2011


This year's Switzer Fellows' New England Spring Retreat was held in Groton and Fitchburg, Massachusetts.  We started the weekend by watching the documentary film, The Work of 1000, which chronicles the story of citizen activist Marion Stoddart as she jump-started the efforts to clean up the Nashua River - formerly one of the most polluted rivers in the U.S.  We also heard from other local activists, river scientists and municipal officials about ongoing efforts to connect the Fitchburg community with its river.  Special thanks to our Switzer Fellows planning team for developing the agenda for this retreat, particularly Beth Reichheld, Cynthia Ingelfinger, Elena Traister and Margaret Rubega
