Eastern North Carolina has a wealth of natural and working lands that are important to the nation’s defense, as recognized in an exciting announcement from N.C. Agriculture Commissioner, Steve Troxler, earlier this week. As part of the North Carolina Sentinel Landscape Partnership, 33 eastern counties in North Carolina were federally designated as Sentinel Landscapes. Of these, 24 counties are located in the Albemarle-Pamlico watershed.
The Sentinel Landscape designation is a new opportunity to bring together a diverse group of partners in North Carolina to advance cooperative conservation efforts.
