Accredited Land Trusts Top 100

August 4, 2010 | Washington, D.C.

Congratulations to the 12 newly accredited land trusts that have been awarded accreditation! One hundred and five land trusts from across the country have earned this important distinction.

The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, made the announcement August 4.

By earning the accreditation seal, these land trusts demonstrate their commitment to meet national standards of excellence, uphold the public’s trust and ensure their conservation efforts are permanent.

“We are thrilled that they are more effective at saving land because they’ve gone through this process for improvement,” said Rand Wentworth, president of the Land Trust Alliance.

Though these land trusts all have accreditation in common, their conservation missions represent the diversity of the land trust community. The land trusts range from a western group working to protect private forests and combat climate change, to the strategic conservation of the New England shoreline. Another land trust is striving to protect the rivers and streams of the Southeast. Each organization is ensuring their unique communities are conserved, and their proven commitment to excellence will ensure this work lasts forever.
