Dreadful Drought

What problems are created when an environment has less water than normal? Learn more about what we can do to help navigate these environmental challenges.

The Last Holdout farm and neighboring community of Cloverville are hitting hard times. They are in the middle of a drought! Fresh water has become limited, and water bills have increased for farms and families. Due to increasing global temperatures, the impacts of drought are becoming more widespread and severe.

Farmer Bastian and his neighbors need your help to find ways to adapt to drought conditions and conserve water so it is available for only the most important uses. Use problem solving skills to help the farm and community find ways to conserve water and adapt to the dry environment.
