Site steward programs are in general a fairly recent development, in which government agencies managing land team up with organizations which can manage volunteers to protect the land and historical and cultural resources. They may become a wonderful way to increase citizen involvement in the care of rock art sites. The Arizona program is 16 years old in 2007 (acdg. BLM)
