Albany-- The Flint River is the classroom for some Georgia teachers this week.
Canoes were unloaded at the Radium Springs boat launch early Wednesday morning for a four-hour trip down the Flint River.
Twenty school teachers from around the state are participating in a week-long float down the Flint, which began in Thomaston and ends at the Appalachicola Sunday.
Lori Digby, an 8th Grade Teacher from Hutto Middle School in Bainbridge says, "As an Earth Science teacher we cover hydrology, and we study river basins and water shed areas and living in Bainbridge on the Flint River it's just a wonderful opportunity to bring more information about the Flint from Thomaston south."
The teachers will travel 350 miles on the river by the end of the trip.
The program, called "The Living Flint", is paid for with a federal grant that's part of the No Child Left Behind Act.
The teachers will tour the Jones Ecological Center in Newton Thursday.
