In the second part of the program, Chris and Nell turn their attention to the states ongoing drought. The governor declared a formal state of emergency with respect to our drought back in October. Since then, the state has been attempting to collect better precipitation data from around the state. One idea is to recruit local citizens or groups to become precipitation monitors and forward that data to the state. Chris and Nell speak with Linda Clark Gillmor director of the Office of Rural Development and the Task Force leader for the state’s Drought Response about how you can become involved in such a program.
