ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Four-H campers from across South Georgia got a chance to study the Flint River and aquatic life from the Riverquarium today.
Seventy students from 6 counties in South Georgia are taking part in the 4H-2-O program this week. The 5th, 6th, and 7th graders today got to do water samples of the Flint River, and do measurements on arthropods and fish from the Riverquarium.
"It's important because the more dissolved oxygen in the water the more fish live, and better food supply we have," said Brooks Pinson, 4-H camper.
"We want to educate them on this natural resource that we have here by the river," said Rad Yager of the Stripling Irrigation Research Park. "We have a great natural resource. Our swamps in Southwest Georgia are very important to our water quality."
The three day camp is put on by the C. M. Stripling Irrigation Research Park and the Flint Riverquarium. Tomorrow the students will travel to Alabama to study the Flint and Chattahooche River Basin.
About the C. M. Stripling Irrigation Research park-
The Stripling Irrigation Research Park signals Georgia's commitment to leadership and problem solving in irrigation for a part of the country labeled "humid" but, in fact, chronically short of water.
Located on Ga Highway 37 between Camilla and Newton in the heart of the Dougherty Plain, one of Georgia's most productive irrigated agricultural areas, the facility is readily accessible to farmers, irrigation suppliers, scientists, engineers and others interested in irrigation.
