STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) - Children don't often think about water unless they're thirsty or ready to swim.
But hundreds of them spent a few hours learning how important it is and how to protect it.
Nearly 900 Bulloch County fourth-graders gathered for the annual Children's Water Festival. They toured several exhibits and games that showed how important water is and how pollution can contaminate it.
They also saw a few wild animals that depend on a clean environment, too. This was the fourth year Bulloch County and Keep Bulloch Beautiful have combined with a host of sponsors to put on the festival.
