Description: Land ownership is a key link between society and natural resources. The dynamics of landowner patterns are demonstrated by the examination of five land ownership maps in the Big Elk Valley of the central Oregon Coast Range. These patterns are further illustrated with the presentation of a land patents map of the Big Elk Valley. We selected this watershed because of its high diversity of ownership classes and the ability of the resulting dynamics to capture many aspects of ownership dynamics. Maps of land ownership are presented for 1907, 1930, 1956, 1979, and 1998. We also provide brief, illustrative descriptions of processes underlying the changing ownership patterns.

Keywords: Land ownership, Big Elk Valley, Oregon
