What Does Your Texas Drought Look Like?

    

A Texas senator is encouraging people to take pictures of the ongoing drought in the Lone Star State.

As drought conditions persist across the state, Senator Judith Zaffirini has started a statewide photography campaign called “What does your Texas drought look like?”  She’s inviting Texans to contribute their photographs of the drought’s impact.

This is a collaborative effort between the Texas Water Development Board, the Texas Department of Agriculture, and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.  Texans can upload their drought photos to the internet via Flickr or Instagram.

The purpose is to help educate Texans regarding the problems associated with drought and the importance of water and water conservation.  The photo campaign will continue through September.

Here’s a link to the site to upload your photos:  http://www.flickr.com/groups/texasdrought/
