Floods - Rachel Werner, Savannah Brooks - <span class="date-display-single">05/11/2022 - 10:30am</span>


05/11/2022 - 10:30am


People, plants, and animals all need rain. But the ground can take in only so much. Too much, and the land will flood. Farms and cities can be damaged. People must move to dry ground until, slowly, the water soaks into the earth. Learn about floods, what we can do, and how to stay safe. Join the event at: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/wbf-floods. Before the event begins, you will see a countdown and the event image. 


Copies of Floods will be distributed for free to the first 100 attendees. During the event, there will be a link at the bottom of the screen, fill out the form, and a book will be sent to you.
