About the Watershed Game. The Watershed Game is an interactive tool that helps individuals understand the connection between land use and water quality. Participants learn how a variety of land uses impact water and natural resources, increase their knowledge of best management practices and learn how their choices can prevent adverse impacts. Participants apply plans, practices and policies that help them achieve a water quality goal for a stream, lake or river.

The Watershed Game is available in four versions. The Stream, Lake, and River Versions for Local Leaders are used with elected and appointed officials, community leaders, business leaders and citizens. The Classroom Version is used with middle to high school audiences. The Watershed Game is a curriculum and resource developed and published by the University of Minnesota Sea Grant College Program and the University of Minnesota Extension.

Expect an interactive experience. The Watershed Game is best learned by using it. Participants will actively take part and lead the different versions of the game throughout the training. Discussions between peers will provide valuable insight. Workshop instructors will also provide information about the history, intended audiences, settings, preparation work needed prior to use and how to get your own copy.
