11 Newly Accredited Land Trusts Bring Total to 93
Congratulations to the 11 newly accredited land trusts that have just been awarded accreditation! This brings the total number of land conservation groups from across the country that have earned this important distinction to 93.
The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, made the announcement March 17.
This group of newly accredited land trusts ranges from a land trust protecting and restoring natural areas in the Pacific Northwest, to a land trust conserving the scenic mountain beauty of the southern Appalachian Mountains, to a land trust protecting desert canyons in the West. Though diverse in location and landscape, they all share a proven commitment to meeting national standards for excellence, upholding the public trust and ensuring that conservation efforts are permanent.
