Land Management

Landowners and land managers support sentinel landscapes by adopting and maintaining sustainable land management practices. We are here to help you accomplish that. 

To get started, please 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 and natural resource management work. If your project 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, which will have information on sentinel landscape partners working in your region and contact information for your local landscape representative.
