Dougherty County -- Teachers from across Georgia are spending this week traveling the length of the Flint River, to learn more about the science of the water system.
Wednesday a lesson of a different kind from the river. The 18 teachers were scheduled to canoe from the Radium Landing Park to Plant Mitchell, as part of their Living Flint Tour. But the water was too swift. Another good look for the teachers at the river's ecosystem.
Coordinator Steve Rainey said "We want them to be aware of water and water issues now. So they can prepare their students for the future."
So the teachers took water samples and ran several tests. The teachers, from across Georgia, are spending the week traveling down the Flint.
They started in Thomaston Sunday, and will end in Apalachicola next Sunday. Crawford County Teacher Phillip Hull said "We are getting a lot of hands on experience, and we hope to be able to bring that into our classrooms."
This is the fourth year that the Georgia Youth Science Technical Center has held the Living Flint Tour. The teachers say it will help them in the classroom next fall. Wilcox County Teacher Melodie McGlamory said "By being in this, I have become more aware, and can help my students become more aware of our environment and how to take care of it."
The teachers on the tour range from kindergarten to high school. The Living Flint Tour is funded by an improving teacher quality state grant.
