The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. Nebraska 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.
“Accreditation has made a tremendous difference in everything that we do, from record retention to land protection,” said NLT Executive Director Dave Sands. “It assures landowners and supporters alike that we are doing all that we can do to fulfill the promise of perpetuity, by protecting cherished private lands forever.”
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Nebraska 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/indicatorpractices.
