Learn all about the Oklahoma Dust Bowl and the impact this storm had on Oklahoma history. Presented by the OSU Extension Office.

"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.

This program is a part of the Water/Ways programming series and is presented by the OSU Cooperative Extension. 

Water/Ways has been made possible in Norman, Oklahoma, through the Pioneer Library System’s East branch by Oklahoma Humanities.

Water/Ways is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.

Water/Ways was adapted from an exhibition organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York, and the Science Museum of Minnesota, St. Paul, in collaboration with Great Lakes Science Center, Cleveland; The Field Museum, Chicago; Instituto Sangari, Sao Paulo, Brazil; National Museum of Australia, Caberra; Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, Canada; San Diego Natural History Museum; and Science Centre Singapore with PUB Singapore.
