California is in its worst drought since 1977. Some say it’s the worst in a century.
Reservoirs are only a third full. Rainfall totals were about 40 percent of normal last winter. Farmers are pumping groundwater to keep crops alive. Wildfire risk is extremely high. And wildlife is in danger as creeks run dry.

1. What’s the plan?
Make a short #DoingForDrought video (2 minutes max) on YouTube and mark it public. It could feature an interview with a family member, friend, or local business owner who is affected by the drought, or it could be just you, telling the world what you’re doing for the drought. If you don’t have a YouTube channel, use a friend’s channel or set one up, it’s easy.
Make a #DoingForDrought poster illustrating what you’re doing or what you think should be done.
