The Watershed Game

The Watershed Game River Model

The Watershed Game is an interactive tool that helps individuals understand the connections 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 stream, lake or river.

Trained Watershed Game Facilitators can now check out any of the 4 game versions:

  • Local Leaders Stream
  • Local Leaders River
  • Local Leaders Lake
  • Classroom

Game versions will be reserved and checked out on a first reserve, first serve basis.

If you have not been trained to use the Watershed game or would like assistance with facilitating the game, please contact the Alabama Water Institute at awi@ua.edu for more information.
