What is the Watershed Game (WSG)? “The Watershed Game is an active, hands-on simulation that helps groups learn how land use impacts water quality and natural resources. While making management choices about land use, participants learn about practices, plans, and policies that improve and protect the quality of a stream, lake, or river. The object of this team-building simulation is to use limited financial resources to reduce excess sediment and/or phosphorus to levels that meet a clean water goal. The Lake Version concentrates on land uses surrounding a typical lake.” – Minnesota Sea Grant and the University of Minnesota Extension, University of Minnesota – Duluth.
