Based on participatory research, site visits, interviews, observations, and secondary data, this study concludes that organizations are evolving to manage for watershed stewardship across multiple scales while also developing a new participatory approach to stewarding urban nature and natural processes. The physical results are the creation of volunteer landscapes that are distinctive in their management and form and are shaped by local volunteers and watershed groups. This emerging watershed governance is a powerful approach that is tied to how volunteers transform these urban creek landscapes and to developing a shared, symbolic sense of ownership in the landscape.2005. 2005 California Watershed Forum.
