This new program from Iowa PBS examines the struggles Iowans have faced as drought conditions dry up rural life and the opportunities that go along with it. Follow along as we discover the history of drought in Iowa, what is being done to protect Iowa’s landscape and how climate change continues to increase the pressure on Iowa’s rural landscape.

Following the hour-long screening, John Torpy, producer and director at Iowa PBS will continue the conversation with Dr. Justin Glisan, State Climatologist within the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship. Through the online shared media viewing platform, audience members can discuss the film and ask questions during the live discussion.
