Sentinel Conservation Area is in Polk County. Sentinel Conservation Area was acquired in part through the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The area has one of the best-known dolomite glade systems in the area. Glade and woodland restoration is in progress on the area.

In the springtime, wildflowers such as Indian Paintbrush, Missouri Primrose and Shooting Star can be seen along with many other wildflowers and native grasses. The area is also home to various wildlife species, including deer, turkey, rabbit, quail, and squirrel.

A small creek running through the north part of the area provides water for wildlife, but it offers no fishing opportunities.
