ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

This Water Festival is more than just having fun its also educational, giving kids resources to obtain a better understanding of what role water plays in the community.

The program will break students down into different workshops, allowing them to ask questions and discuss the water cycle and weather with meteorologists, witness live demonstrations on animal survival by experts and even learn how to protect themselves from mosquitoes in wet conditions. The presentation will also include information on how water affects Georgia agriculture, health and pollution. The program is organized by Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful, Georgia Water Planning and Policy Center and The Flint RiverQuarium.

The value of the festival is to create good water conservation habits among kids. It will start Tuesday from 9am to 2pm and will continue till Thursday.
