Fort Huachuca Sentinel Landscapes

Founded in 2013 by the U.S. Department of Defense, Department of Agriculture, and Department of the Interior, the Sentinel Landscapes Partnership works to empower private landowners, strengthen military readiness, and preserve natural resources. We work with Fort Huachuca and other federal and state agencies to promote compatible land uses that enhance operations and training on Fort Huachuca, while working to

  • strengthen the local economies of adjacent farms and ranches, 
  • reduce the threat of catastrophic wildfire,
  • protect open space, and
  • improve habitat and population numbers for threatened, endangered and at-risk species.
