Albany - Construction of a new $1-million exhibit at the Flint Riverquarium should start by fall. The Flint Riverquarium "Theater in the Trees" exhibit will be built east of the blue hole and extend over the Flint River.

It will include an amphitheater for educational programs and an aviary, where spectators can see aquatic birds. A broadwalk will lead visitors to an overlook where they can view the river from a bird's eye view.

"Attractions, like this, want to put in something new every one to two years. So clearly this new exhibit, in compliment with the exhibits the Riverquarium already has, will hopefully help boost our attendance when it opens," said Doug Noble, Director .

Dougherty County commissioners agreed to allocate $110,000 in sales tax money for the design and engineering of the exhibit. Voters already approved using $1-million in sales tax money on the project.
