ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Third grade students in Dougherty county learned about the importance of conserving our water supply during Tuesday's Water Festival.

The three day event kicked off at the Civic Center. 

Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful and the Albany State University Georgia Water Planning and Policy Center sponsored the event. 

Students went from station to station, learning about conservation, mosquito control, and pollution. 

WALB's Andrew Gorton was there to show students the Storm Tracker. 

"These are our future leaders and if they don't conserve our water and take care of it, our quantity of water and our quality of water is life for all of us," said Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful Executive Director Judy Bowles. "It's our most precious natural resource."

800 students will participate in the Water Festival. 

It will continue through Thursday.
