dc.description.abstractThe number of citizen monitoring programs, both nationally and in Georgia, has grown exponentially in recent years. This paper examines why citizen monitoring programs have become increasingly popular, who is involved, what are the program outcomes, and where active programs are located. Georgia Adopt-A-Stream encourages individuals and communities to adopt a local stream, river or lake. By working in partnership with local governments and other community leaders, volunteers help protect water quality by raising awareness of specific local water conditions and taking steps to improve stream health.en_US
