Reader: Please support Falls of the Ohio

Many people know about the world-famous Devonian fossil beds located amidst the Ohio River in the Falls of the Ohio State Park and National Wildlife Conservation Area between Clarksville and Louisville, and that it is a diverse natural habitat that more than 500,000 visitors enjoy every year. 

Some know that it has been designated a national natural landmark and the country’s only national wildlife conservation area. Thousands of students eagerly explore this natural paradise through the state park visitor center exhibits, programs and staff.

Now is a critical stage in the efforts of the Falls of the Ohio Foundation to raise the remaining funds to complete the final financing for all-new innovative exhibits which are being creatively designed by Solid Light Inc. of Louisville. As someone who has helped plan these new exhibits, I can guarantee that they will be very dynamic, intriguing and absorbing with new technological enhancements and hands-on learning activities that match the outstanding Phase 1 component — Brook White’s 1,000-piece glass sculpture mobile hanging in the rotunda, featuring suspended fossils, water drops, sun rays, animal foot prints, Native American art, a canoe and other interpretive elements of the Falls area and history. 

If you have not seen it, make sure you pay a visit to see this unique mesmerizing glass sculpture.

I hope the wonderful support of the regional community continues in helping the foundation’s Crossroads Campaign fundraising efforts this year to finance the completion of these new exciting exhibits.

Visit for more information.

— Kenny Karem, vice-president of the Falls of the Ohio Foundation
