Public Notice: Renewal of National Accreditation

The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. Shasta Land Trust is pleased to announce it is applying for renewal of accreditation. A public comment period is now open.
The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies and programs. Shasta Land Trust was first awarded accreditation in 2011. The accreditation program has helped shape Shasta Land Trust into a strong, professional organization. The seal of accreditation ensures our landowners, partners, and supporters know that we uphold the highest standards in our efforts to conserve significant lands in far northern California.
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Shasta Land Trust complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. For the full list of standards, click here.
