The Land Trust Alliance land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. The Wetlands Conservancy is pleased to announce it is applying for renewal of accreditation. A public comment period is now open.
The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies and programs. The Wetlands Conservancy values the accountability and organizational standards of this accreditation that in return, helps us build trust and create stronger financial asks to funders and donors.
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how The Wetlands Conservancy complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. For the full list of standards see http://www.landtrustaccreditation.org/help-and-resources/indicator-practices.
