OETA teams up with Oklahoma Conservation Partnership to launch Dust Bowl education project
OETA has teamed up with the Oklahoma Conservation Partnership to launch a statewide community engagement initiative to examine the history and lessons of Oklahoma’s experience of the Dust Bowl, according to a news release.
The Oklahoma Conservation Partnership is made up of the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts (OACD), the Oklahoma Conservation Commission and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS),
The Dust Bowl education project was put together to work in conjunction with the fall premiere of a new PBS documentary from acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns (“The Civil War,” “Baseball,” “The War.”)
“The Dust Bowl,” a two-part, four-hour film, debuts at 7 p.m. Nov. 18 on OETA and documents the history of the Dust Bowl and its causes, but primarily centers on Oklahoma and the state’s dust bowl survivors.
The Dust Bowl education project will include screenings and panel discussions across the state, locally produced Dust Bowl content, customized classroom materials, survivor story collection, social networking and multi-media projects, along with a comprehensive web site at www.oeta.tv/dustbowl containing event details and community resources.
