We’re Proud to Renew Our Accreditation With the Land Trust Alliance

The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands. Land Trust for Louisiana is pleased to announce it is applying for the renewal of our 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 Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how LTL complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. For the full list of standards click here.

To learn more about the accreditation program and to submit a comment, visit landtrustaccreditation.org or email your comment to info@landtrustaccreditation.org.

Comments on LTL’s application will be most useful by May 31, 2020.
