Review for River Discovery Center, Paducah, KY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

It is all about the children. This River Discovery Center offers an excellent venue for elementary students with field trips and summer camp. It also coordinates the Adopt A Towboat program for area grades 4-6 this the major barge companies operated out of Paducah. The exhibits are well done and we hope to improve in a big way in the near future. Our corporate sustainers and members are a good cross section of the towing industry and area community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the staff and board stay on a steady course during hard economic times.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like to see additional exhibits for the visitors.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

learning and watching the staff and board of directors manage the operation of the River Discovery Center.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very active and good for this facility.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do what we would like to see with 2 million bucks.

Ways to make it better...

we did not have such a hard economic situation. We need a major source to do a large expansion.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Money and expansion.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I hope this does not start a bunch of unwanted emails back.
