Working with Water Resources

The Watershed Game

Oregon Sea Grant has access to both Local Leader and Classroom versions of The Watershed Game - Coast Model, an interactive outreach tool used to help participants learn how land use affects water quality and natural resources.

Participants playing The Watershed Game learn about practices, plans, and policies that improve and protect the quality of a stream, lake, river or coastal region while making management choices about land use in a fun, and low-stress environment. Players learn to consider and involve all land uses within a watershed as they work to achieve their clean water goals.
