We were among the first 39 land trusts in the United States to receive accredited status through the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. The accreditation seal is a mark of distinction in land conservation. It recognizes organizations for meeting national standards for excellence, upholding the public trust and ensuring that conservation efforts are permanent.
We have earned a Platinum Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar. We are also an approved nonprofit partner of 1% for the Planet.
