HHLT Applying For Accreditation Renewal

We are in the process of applying for renewal of our accreditation through the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance. A public comment period is now open through December 14, 2018.


The land trust accreditation program recognizes organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. We were among the first 39 land trusts in the United States to be awarded Accredited Land Trust status by the Land Trust Commission in 2008.

As part of its 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 we comply with national quality standards that address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust.
