The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. Hilltown Land Trust is pleased to announce it is applying for renewal of accreditation. A public comment period is now open.
“As a small, regional land trust that is dedicated to providing excellent conservation services for our community, we want to be sure that we are keeping up with the best practices in our field,” said Sally Loomis, Executive Director of Hilltown Land Trust. “Renewing our accreditation with the Land Trust Alliance is the best way for us to ensure that we are holding ourselves to the highest standard.”
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Hilltown Land Trust 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.
