Abstract or Summary
  • The National Estuary Program (NEP) has as its core an excellent public involvement strategy. As a result, NEPs can be viewed as ideal financial and technical support `umbrellas' under which citizen volunteer monitoring activities can be readily and successfully established. This study focused on individual NEPs nationally and their citizen volunteer water quality monitoring (VWQM) activities. In particular, three elements responsible for successful volunteers programs, program initiation, implementation and evaluation were examined. Under these elements, various aspects of volunteer programs were addressed, such as financial and technical support, recruitment success, volunteer training, program size, scope, parameters sampled and technology employed. Areas where volunteer programs were particularly successful and less successful were also identified.
