A River Ran Wild delineates the history of the Nashua river, beginning with its relationship to the Nashua Native Americans. The Nashua river, originally called the Nash-a-way, began with “clear water” and “pebbles [that] shone up from the bottom;” however, as society progressed, the Nashua became a dumping site for all types of pollution. Because of two brave individuals willing to fight for what they believed in, new legislation was passed that not only cleaned the Nashua river, but protected it from further pollution.

Two important ways to stop Polluting our Land:
Stop Littering (throwing trash, cigarette buds and not picking up after our animals).
Stop Polluting our rivers by throwing trash in them.
