The Fish and Wildlife Service Announces Three New Sentinel Landscapes
The Departments of the Interior, Agriculture, and Defense announced three new Sentinel Landscapes, bringing the total to 10: Camp Bullis Sentinel Landscape in Texas, Northwest Florida Sentinel Landscape, and the Southern Indiana Sentinel Landscape. The Sentinel Landscape program is a successful partnership among the three Departments, state and local governments, private landowners and NGO’s that enables military readiness while preserving local agriculture, natural resources, and wildlife habitat. Since the inception of the Sentinel Landscapes program, the investments have permanently protected more than 467,000 acres of land and implemented sustainable management practices on an additional 2.3 million acres. Conserving America’s lands and waters for the benefit of all people through collaborative and inclusive approaches reflects the goals and principles of America the Beautiful.
