The North Shore Land Alliance Applies For Reaccreditation

The North Shore Land Alliance helped Preserve Youngs Farm.

The North Shore Land Alliance, Inc. received national accreditation status from the Land Trust Alliance’s Land Trust Accreditation Program back in 2014. The Land Trust Accreditation Program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. The North Shore Land Alliance is pleased to announce it is applying for reaccreditation this year.

“The Land Alliance was honored to have received national accreditation from the Land Trust Alliance back in 2014,” said Lisa Ott, Land Alliance president and CEO. “That process strengthened the effectiveness of our organization and helped us demonstrate that we are worthy of the public trust. Now that we approach reaccreditation in 2019, we are confident that this effort will propel us even further in our ability to protect our community’s most special places in perpetuity.”

The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, conducts an 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 the North Shore Land Alliance complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. For the full list of standards visit www.landtrustaccreditation.org/help-and-resources/indicator-practices.

To learn more about the accreditation program and to submit a comment, visit www.landtrustaccreditation.org or email info@landtrustaccreditation.org.

Comments may also be faxed or mailed to the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, Attn: Public Comments: (fax) 518-587-3183; (mail) 36 Phila Street, Suite 2, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.

Comments on the North Shore Land Alliance’s application will be most useful by April 24.
