Michigan Watershed Game Workshop

The Watershed Game (WSG) team is hosting a Train-the-Trainer workshop that will focus on the WSG: Coast Model. We will explore critical coastal issues, including eutrophication and increasing flooding. The workshop will highlight the Local Leader Version which is designed for use with small groups of elected and appointed officials, members of watershed organizations, and other community leaders and groups.

Workshop participants will learn how the WSG can be used to engage their audiences and help meet education, planning, or program objectives. The goal of the workshop is to prepare participants so they are ready to facilitate gameplay with their target audience.
