WaterPortal Society publishes fun and educational online games and videos


A pick-and-choose adventure game explores the connections between water users, allowing players to cross the Bow River from the headwaters to the confluence with the Oldman River; this game of “Follow the Drop” takes players through the system.

“Driving down the game’s river, you choose the path a water drop takes from its beginning like a snowflake or a raindrop,” explains Brie Nelson. “Are you going all the way to the end of the river? Or will you evaporate or become a pizza along the way?”

Alongside the adventure game, a series of short animated videos will introduce viewers to key conservation concepts, sparking innovative thinking about the interdependence of water resources, agriculture and energy production. The videos focus on a healthy environment, population growth, protecting water quality, and the complex relationships among all water users in a watershed.

“Understanding the Water Nexus is the stepping stone to managing our water so that we have a sustainable economy and also maintain a healthy environment. Everyone has a role to play and this work helps educate individuals about what they can do on a daily basis.” says dr. Kim Sturgesexecutive director of WaterPortal and leading specialist in water management in Canada.

These new online activities are in addition to the online learning tools already published by the Alberta WaterPortal Society. Find a list of other fun activities here. These new resources were made possible through the generous support of the Carlson Family Foundation, Nutrien and Enbridge, as well as the Government of Canada and the government of alberta through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.
