The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. MENDOCINO LAND TRUST 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. “The accreditation seal will let the public know that MENDOCINO LAND TRUST has undergone an extensive, external review of the governance and management of our organization and the systems and policies it uses to protect land, said Ann Cole, Executive Director. With accreditation our land trust will be able to display a seal indicating to the public that it meets national standards for excellence, upholds the public trust and ensures that conservation efforts are permanent.”
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how MENDOCINO 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/tips-and-tools/indicator-practices.
