On Tuesday, July 12, 2016, North Carolina Agriculture Commissioner, Steve Troxler, announced North Carolina’s participation in the Sentinel Landscape Partnership, which is a conservation effort begun in 2013 to improve military readiness, protect at-risk and endangered species, enhance critical wildlife habitat and restore working agricultural and natural lands in the Southeast and Midwest.

Sentinel Landscapes are working or natural lands important to the Nation’s defense mission—places where preserving the working and rural character of key landscapes strengthens the economies of farms, ranches, and forests; conserves habitat and natural resources; and protects vital test and training missions conducted on those military installations that anchor such landscape.

The NCFA is one of the several non-profit organizations partnering in this effort to provide our military training facilities the best training conditions through easements with private landowners.
