This valuation study is designed to be the first phase of a larger series of studies to value the ecosystem services of the Verde River and its watershed. Interviews were conducted with 35 anonymous community leaders who live in, work with, or manage some aspect of the watershed (or a combination of the three). The interviews resulted in a large list of values for the watershed and provide a starting point for more studies. This report includes preliminary analysis of the data collected from these interviews, a brief literature review on ecosystem services, and recommendations for future research.
