The Watershed Game helps students understand the relationship between land uses within a watershed, water quality, and their community. Working in teams, students apply tools (practices, plans, and policies) to decrease water pollution while balancing financial resources. The goal for the activity is to reduce pollution from various land uses to the stream without going broke.
