Special to the Journal
Every Wednesday for six weeks, beginning Feb. 8, the Flint RiverQuarium and Thronateeska Heritge Center will be partnering to teach a series of classes geared toward elementary-aged homeschooled students.
The theme, “Seasons and Cycles,” will explore the weather and the changes it has on our environment, focusing on how Earth’s habitats change through the seasons, weather patterns, life cycles and more. Each week students will explore, investigate, describe, experiment and observe in a hands-on setting.
Classes, which will be held from 2 pm-4 pm, will alternate between the two facilities. The cost is $50 per child and is planned for children kindergarten through sixth grade. Information and registration is available online at www.flintriverquarium.com or by contacting the Education Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or 229.639.2650 ext. 226.
The Flint RiverQuarium is southwest Georgia’s premier aquarium, featuring more than 1,000 animals that call the Flint River watershed home. The Flint RiverQuarium is located at 101 Pine Avenue in downtown Albany, Georgia. Regular operating hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m.-5 p.m.
