The Flint Riverquarium helped families understand the importance of natural resources.

They held their sixth annual Water, Wings and Wildlife Festival.
Families built birdhouses, watched presentations from the Georgia Seaturtle Center. There was also a birds of prey show and a scuba diving class.
Organizers said natural resources are so important to our community.

"Wildlife, plants, water and soil if all of that is not connected and working well together then we're not going to be able to live very healthy lives ourselves,” said Melissa Martin, Education Curator. “So this is kind of a celebration of natural resources to come on out and learn more about it and have fun too."  

They also debuted their brand new salt water touch tank.
