This workshop targets K-12 teachers and informal water, environment, natural resource educators and professional staff, and volunteer instructors, such as Master Gardeners, Master Naturalist, Master Water Stewards, and 4H club leaders.

The Watershed Game is an interactive, educational tool that helps individuals understand the connection 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 (BMPs), and learn how their choices can prevent adverse impacts. Participants apply the tools of plans, practices, and policies that help them achieve clean water goals for protection and restoration while providing for community growth.

Workshop goals: Workshop will train participants to use the Watershed Game including the new Classroom Version designed for use in middle to high school classrooms by formal teachers and informal science educators. The Minnesota Sea Grant and Minnesota Extension Program present the Watershed Game.
