By doing this project I learned about droughts in general and their effects, and also the specific situation in California today.  Before doing this project, I wasn't aware of how devastating the current drouoght was, and I was shocked to find how tragic the situation in the agricuktural community of the central valley.  However, upon looking further into California's Water Shortage Crisis, I was enlightened to find that much has done already to reduce the effects of the drought, and that the situation is definately improving.  If my project is successful, it will inspire people to go further in their efforts to minimize the devastation of the drought we are still experienciencing today.
