Learn About Kentucky Water Nonprofits on KET


The new two-part series on nonprofits working with water premieres December 12th at 3pm on KETKY.

Our tenth episode, “What Would It Be Like Without Water”, Part Two, will feature segments on Paducah’s River Discovery Center where we’ll learn about commerce, travel, tourism and the history of the four rivers of Western Kentucky. Our second story will look at the Kentucky River Keeper, where we’ll learn about new river trails and recreational uses for our water systems, including dams along the Kentucky River.

Hosted by Brian Simmons, this show will outline what it would be like without these critical educational and protective initiatives and how our communities can get involved.

Hidden Highways

The River Discovery Center is a private, non-profit, educational institution whose primary mission is to stimulate an interest in and teach the public about the importance of America’s rivers to the development of the nation, and in particular upon the Four Rivers Region.

For twenty years, a group of people from Paducah realized and filled a need for a river/maritime museum. The River Discovery Center has used a variety of exhibits, including some interactive, to highlight and educate people on the importance of Paducah’s rich river history as well as the river industry.

It is critical that the next generation of our community be educated on the importance of our rivers. While providing a water source for our region, our rivers also play a vital role in our environment and economy; after all, Paducah’s existence gives thanks to it’s geographical location on a river. Before the River Discovery Center opened, there was no place for our children to become “connected” to our rivers. Here, they have a place for fun learning about all aspects of our rivers.
