"The Worst Hard Times" is a presentation about the Oklahoma Dust Bowl Era from which the High Plains has never fully recovered. We will look at what were causes of the Dust Bowl, what settlers had to deal with in caring and feeding their families, and share snapshots of folks that lived through this era. Learn more about how water impacts our world in more ways than we realize!
Registration is encouraged but not required, for reminders and notices.
