The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. Manada Conservancy is pleased to announce it is applying for 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. Accreditation is awarded to land trusts meeting the highest national standards for excellence and conservation permanence. This external recognition will further strengthen our ongoing collaborations with other land trust organizations.
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Manada 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.
