Cultural Resource Protection for Private Landowners - Site Stewardship, Volunteer Program
The Sitewatch Program is a volunteer-based initiative that establishes individuals or groups as site monitors. Monitors formally agree to regularly visit and maintain a site. Monitors routinely fill out a site monitoring form to alert the site owner and Bureau of Archaeological Research of site management needs. The monitors indicate on the form what the managment concern is (looting, tree fall, trash dumping, etc.), and the form is then sent to the owner. Typically, the owner and the site monitors will work together to maintain the site.
