Apply for Designation

The Sentinel Landscapes Application Window is Now Closed

Thank you for your interest in the Sentinel Landscapes Partnership! Unfortunately, we are not accepting applications at this time. Please check back in Winter 2019 for information on future designation cycles.

Information on the previous designation, including eligibility requirements and evaluative criteria is available in theĀ 2017 Sentinel Landscapes Application Form. Please note that these requirements and criteria are subject to change as the Sentinel Landscapes Partnership continues to evolve.


Private landowners support sentinel landscapes by adopting and maintaining sustainable land management practices around military installations and ranges. We are here to help you accomplish that.

To get started, we encourage you to visit our interactive landowner resources tool. This tool will help you find voluntary federal and state assistance programs that offer tax reductions, agricultural loans, disaster relief, educational opportunities, technical aid, and funding for conservation easements. If your property falls within a sentinel landscape boundary, you may be eligible for priority consideration for certain programs.

Next, we suggest that you visit your local sentinel landscape's profile page. Your sentinel landscape's page will have information on local events and meetings that are going on in your area. If you still have questions, you can contact a representative from your local sentinel landscape.

2020 Sustaining Military Readiness Conference

Registration is free for all attendees.

The Sustaining Military Readiness Conference welcomes leaders from the conservation, agriculture, and military test and training fields to discuss opportunities to strengthen military readiness through partnerships and planning. The conference was established in 2007 to encourage dialogue across the wide spectrum of communities involved in military readiness. Over time, the event has become known as a launchpad for innovative projects that support national defense, while simultaneously bolstering local economies and advancing conservation efforts. The Sentinel Landscapes Partnership will be featured at the conference's expo, as well as in numerous conference sessions.
