    Description

    Regulation alone cannot solve complex ecological problems on private lands that are managed for diverse uses. Executing coordinated restoration projects at the watershed scale is only possible with the cooperation and commitment of all stakeholders. Locally organized, nonregulatory watershed councils have proven to be a powerful method of engaging citizens from all interest groups in planning and implementing solutions to improve water quality and fish and wildlife habitat. However, guidance on how to keep science at the forefront in these community-based decisionmaking councils has been largely unavailable until now.

    Based on science by Rebecca Flitcroft.
