The wildlife downtown are relaxing and seem as though they don't have a care in the world, but the place they call home may be in trouble. The Flint Riverquarium has slashed spending and jobs.
Vicki Churchman says, "We all realize that this is the type of thing that has to happen when you are trying to be economical."
The downtown attraction has hit a tough spot financially and is dealing with a decrease in visitors.
Churchman says, "We always need the community's support we are here for the community.We are looking forward to summer camps and for family's to come out and enjoy the aquarium."
And that community involvement is more important than ever to keep the Riverquarium afloat
Churchman says, "So when the community comes out and visits us, pays admission, and purchases a membership you are supporting your own asset."
And supporting downtown Albany. Churchman says, "The most successful cities are those that have vibrant thriving downtown's."
So through promotions like tonight's third Thursday and events like flint river canoe trips they hope to continue pumping life into Albany's tourism. They promise that Although the staff has reduced, they will continue to work to satisfy their visitors.
Churchman says, "We all just pitch in and do the best that we can and try our best not to allow our staff cutbacks to effect our service."
