Florida Archaeological Site Stewardship Programs

The Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research has developed three site stewardship programs: The Site Stewardship Agreement, The Stewardship Volunteer Program, and the Sitewatch Program. Each of these programs depends upon the cooperation of landowners, private citizens, non-profit organizations and the State.

The Florida Anthropological Society (FAS) is an organization made up of non-profit organizations throughout the state that raise awareness of archaeology and archaeological site protection.
