So, can you name 5 nonprofits working with water?

The new two-part series on nonprofits working with water premieres November 10th at 5pm on KETKY. Our ninth episode, “What Would It Be Like Without Water”, Part One, will feature segments on Bluegrass Greensource’s Conservation programs; and we’ll also be visiting clean-up efforts along the Ohio River in Rabbit Hash, KY organized by ORSANCO and their annual River Sweep program.

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.

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