The on-going drought in Texas is drying up farms, ranches and wildlife but it’s also a historic event for the state, which is now looking at capturing and preserving the images of the drought.
What does your Texas drought look like? is a statewide photo campaign that invites Texans to contribute their photos of the effects of the drought using social media.
The Texas Water Development Board, along with the Texas Department of Agriculture and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, are holding campaign to document this historic drought and also increase the public’s awareness of its impact across the state.
To share your photos:
- Joint the TWDB Flickr group and post at: www.flickr.com/groups/texasdrought/
- Post pictures to Twitter or Instagram using #txdrought
- You can also email photos to Texasdrought@yahoo.com with "Texas Drought" as the subject
The state agencies will feature selected photos on their media accounts and websites. Some of the photos will be used to help educate Texans on the problems associated with drought disasters, and the importance of water and water conservation to this state.
The Texas drought photo campaign will run from August to September of this year.
