Wings and Wildlife Festival celebrates So.GA creatures

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –The Flint RiverQuarium will host the First Annual Wings and Wildlife Festival Saturday to celebrate south Georgia's native wildlife.

There will be lots of hands-on and interactive family activities, from instructions on how to build a birdhouse to guided canoe trips on the River and Garden Tours at Radium Springs.

There will be lots of education about wildlife, like this lionfish, which has gone from aquarium pet to a predator from Mexico to North Carolina.

Seaview Aquariums Ben Scott said  "All the small species of fish are actually disappearing because these are voracious predators. So when you get hundreds of these out there, they are just wiping out species."

The Thronateeska Heritage Center is also offering planetarium shows and storytelling as part of the Festival.

You can get more information about the festival here.
