Public Notice for Accreditation Renewal

The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. Wood River Land Trust is pleased to announce it is applying for renewal of 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 program ensures that land trusts throughout the country are upholding the highest ethics and standards to ensure our conservation work lasts for generations,” says Land Trust Executive Director, Scott Boettger.  “We were proud to be one of the first Accredited land trusts in the West, and we work every day to continue this high quality work.”

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Wood River 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
