Accreditation Renewal Public Notice

We love the work that we do, and like you, love to get out on the land. The administrative part of our work, however, isn’t always as exciting. But it is extremely important.

We are working to renew our accreditation (awarded in 2013) by the National Land Trust Accreditation Commission. Accreditation assures our supporters that we have the ways and means to protect important natural places and working lands.

Your comments are welcome, and should be submitted by April 27, 2018. Here are two ways to comment:

-Go to, and click on “Comment on a Land Trust.”
