Following in the Flow to Clean Up Our Waters, with guest Bonnie Combs, Marketing Director, Blackstone Heritage Corridor

Clean water is one of our most important resources. It sustains our lives, our health, our economy and our natural environment. When it becomes dirty, all these things suffer. How did our rivers and oceans become so polluted with trash, chemicals and bacteria, and what are we doing about it? In the first segment, we will take a story walk, stepping back in history to consider the use of rivers during the Industrial Era and returning to the present to begin to look at how things are changing for the better.

Bonnie Combs, Marketing Director, Blackstone Heritage CorridorLater in the show, environmentalist Bonnie Combs will speak with us about the Blackstone Heritage Corridor, where she serves as the Marketing Director. The Blackstone River, known as “the hardest working river,” runs 46 miles from Worcester, MA, to Pawtucket, RI. Dropping a total of 438 feet in that distance, the river narrows and surges with the tremendous power that fueled the Industrial Revolution. Industrial factories polluted the river waters with industrial and bacterial waste. As the economy grew, so did the amount of trash that ended up in the river. Fortunately, clean water is now the law, and the cities and towns along the Blackstone are coming together to preserve and promote the Blackstone River Valley’s historic, cultural, natural, and recreational resources for current and future generations

Wendy Fachon and Bonnie Combs

Wendy Nadherny Fachon Host Story Walking RadioBIO: Story Walking Radio Host, Wendy Nadherny Fachon empowers young people, by showing how to step forward into each new life learning adventure with clarity, confidence and positive energy. Wendy began her youth work training in the school of life by observing and listening to her own daughter and son as they faced the challenges of growing up with bullying, fickle friends, and tough teachers. When her nephews, aged 5 and 7, lost their father on 9/11, she joined the boys and her sister on their bumpy journey along the road to recovery from deep trauma and upheaval.

As Wendy’s children grew into their independence, she entered into youth work and earned her RIPQA certification, Rhode Island’s 21st Century Community Learning Center program quality training. At the same time, she joined a holistic community, which informed and inspired her Story Walking practice, and in 2011, Wendy created a lyrical Storywalker CD, Fiddlesticks, to introduce the concept of Story Walking to children and parents. Wendy’s stories and associated lessons combine mindful walking, word play, environmental education and spirituality to nurture the personal development of her followers. From there, Wendy began leading programs for in-school and out-of-school-time (OST) enrichment.

One of her first youth work assignments was to form an after-school walking club to help an unusually obese child get more physically active, make friends, and increase self-esteem. At the core of the Story Walking practice is the concept that each individual is the main character in his or her own unique life story, holding the power to weave the fabric of that story through the conscious energetic choices of words, thoughts, intentions and actions, elicited in response to both fortunate and unfortunate situations. Inevitably, each story becomes an important piece of the great storied tapestry of humanity.

In 2014, Wendy published her Storywalker children’s book, The Angel Heart. Dedicated to her late father, this poetic story presents a metaphor for finding the peace, love and joy within ourselves when confronted with sadness, loss and grief.

In 2016, Wendy’s faced the unimaginable, when her 19-year-old son, Neil, was diagnosed with DIPG, an aggressive, rare, inoperable form of the brain stem cancer. Doctors said he would be dead within three months. Neil’s story was an epic battle on multiple fronts, where he rose above overwhelming adversity to outlive his prognosis enough to create a lasting impact on the world, before finally departing from his physical body. His story continues beyond his passing, as his spirit guides Wendy and the rest of his family in finding ways to bring greater hope and joy to children experiencing life threatening illnesses and other challenges. After a year of caregiving and a time of intense grief, Wendy was guided back to her Story Walking practice with a higher sense of purpose and seeks to expand her practice through the Story Walking Radio Hour.

Affiliated with The Empowerment Factory, Wendy is recognized for her creative collaboration with many youth-focused organizations and Title I schools. She is also a regular contributor to Natural Awakenings healthy living magazine, writing articles about children, health, and environmental issues.
