The North Shore Land Alliance announced recently that it was awarded renewed accreditation for a standard five-year term by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. Accreditation is a mark of distinction, recognizing land trusts that meet the national quality standards established by the land conservation community.

“We are thrilled to have received affirmation that we are working at the leading edge of land conservation,” said Lisa Ott, Land Alliance president and CEO. “Many thanks to all the community members who contributed positive feedback about the Land Alliance.”

As of October 2019, approximately 30 percent of land trusts in the United States and territories are accredited. The Land Alliance was first awarded accreditation back in 2014.

The North Shore Land Alliance Inc. was founded in 2003 and works to protect and preserve, in perpetuity, the green spaces, farmlands, wetlands, groundwater and historical sites of Long Island’s North Shore for the enhancement of quality of life and benefit of future generations. To date, the nonprofit has preserved more than 1,200 acres of open space on the North Shore of Long Island. For more information or to become a member, visit
