On July 31st, we received a call worth celebrating by our staff, our board, and our members.
After years of discussion, hundreds of hours of planning, preparing and responding, we were awarded the highest endorsement available in our field.
As donors and landowners, you’ll see the accreditation stamp on our website and in our correspondence. What you won’t see, is a difference in our approach to land protection. Fiscal responsibility and ethical business practices are core values for us. We’re proud that our hard work has paid off and perhaps our new designation gives each of you a little extra peace of mind when you are considering investing in us or donating a conservation easement.
In October, we’ll walk across a stage at the Land Trust Alliance annual Rally in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, carrying the flag of accreditation, while being cheered along by colleagues from across the country. We know when we return home, we’ll carry on business as usual… but perhaps with a little extra spring in our step.
We look forward to sharing more great news with you in the coming months – and thank you for making this great ride possible.
