Water Festival begins at the Flint Riverquarium

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of south Georgia children are learning about the importance of water.

More than 900 5th graders will take part in the 11th Annual Water Festival at the Flint Riverquarium through Thursday.

Tuesday, students met Bogart the Camel from Chehaw, listened to a weather presentation from our own Yolanda Amadeo, and learned ways to avoid pollution.

"The water we have today is the same water that dinosaurs drank. We can't make water and they need to know that they have to preserve and keep it and keep it non polluted," said Judy Bowles from Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful.

The Festival is put on by Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful, The Flint Riverquarium, and the ASU Georgia Water Planning Center.
