Land Trust Accreditation

Mass Audubon is pleased to announce it is applying for renewal of its land trust accreditation. A public comment period is now open. The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever.

The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, conducts an extensive review of each applicant's policies and programs. Mass Audubon's Director of Land Conservation Bob Wilber summarizes, "Land trust accreditation is an important national program that helps maintain high standards and the public's trust in the work land trusts do. Mass Audubon's decision to participate demonstrates our commitment to excellence and to constant improvement in our work."

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Mass Audubon complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. View the full list of standards >
