Take the stream restoration challenge – Washed Away – NewsObserver.com.

Very simple simulation game that teaches some very basic concepts associated with stream restoration projects.

Game was part of a 3 part series about the challenges the state of North Carolina has implementing effective stream and wetland mitigation projects (effectively in-lieu-fee, the way they run the program).

Solution: less NC State regulation, more large-scale banks developed by the private sector created in advance of the impacts. Let the USACE oversee entitlement of the banks and turn long-term monitoring over to 3rd parties who hold non wasting endowments to maintain the bank sites in perpetuity (aka USACE 2008 regulatory guidance).
