The next Louisville Life, hosted by Candyce Clifft, features the environmental education program Louisville ECHO (Engaging Children Outdoors), the Louisville Equestrian Center, the city’s new director of safe neighborhoods, and Joe Ley Antiques. The program premieres Saturday, May 18 at 7/6 p.m. on KET and Thursday, May 23 at 7:30/6:30 p.m. on KET2.
Louisville ECHO, an environmental education initiative sponsored by the Louisville Metro Parks Department, provides opportunities for 4th-grade students to develop a closer relationship with the environment through field trips to local and regional parks. In this segment, Louisville Life follows a group on a field trip to Red River Gorge.
Next, the program heads to the Louisville Equestrian Center, the creation of expert horsewoman Betsy Webb, who is the only Level III certified instructor of the American Riding Instructors Association in Kentucky. The Louisville Equestrian Center is a family- and horse-friendly facility providing equestrian instruction and training for all levels of riders.
Louisville Life also travels to Market Street, where for almost fifty years Joe Ley has been providing a constantly changing inventory of antiques inside his store located in an 1890 schoolhouse. Joe Ley Antiques has been featured in Southern Living and Travel and Leisure magazines.
In the studio, Clifft talks with Anthony Smith, who was recently appointed by Louisville’s mayor as the city’s first director of safe neighborhoods.
Louisville Life is a KET production, produced and directed by Gary Pahler. Jayne McClew is co-producer, and Angelic Phelps is associate producer.
