The Watershed Game

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 reserved, first-served basis.

If you have not been trained to use the Watershed game or would like assistance with facilitating the game, please contact Lanna Nations at for more information.


Students watching as a demonstration is given using Enviroscape.

AWI is excited to offer faculty affiliates the ability to sign out our Enviroscape. This watershed pollution teaching tool is like a barbie dream house for watersheds. Students can create their town and watch how best management practices keep pollutants out of waterways. They will decide the best places to implement these solutions to have the cleanest surface and subsurface water. They will learn about point source and non-point source pollution. You can learn more about Enviroscapes by watching the video below.
