Hundreds of students took time out off from classroom learning to investigate the many uses of water at the 11th Annual Water Festival.
The event is sponsored by Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful and held at the Flint Riverquarium.
Students travelled through a series of nine stations learning about topics ranging from agricultural water use to water and soil erosion.
Representatives from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, Dougherty County Public Works and Chehaw were among many doing demonstrations for students.
Eleven schools from around Southwest Georgia came out to the event.
