    Description

    This study describes landowner values about water quality among resident landowners in the LaPlatte River watershed, tests whether suburbanization is producing a new mix of social values, analyzes the relationship between values and behaviors, and explores the link between recreation and water quality advocacy. Results showed that residents hold pro-environmental values, although the region is not a stronghold of environmentalism. There was a clear "flatlander" effect, with newcomers holding more pro-environmental values than long term residents. Long term residents used their land more intensively than newcomers. There was a weak relationship between values and land use behaviors, although long-term residents showed more consistency between values and behaviors. Finally, recreational preference was not related to one's values about clean water.
