Land Trust Accreditation Renewal

The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. The Block Island Conservancy is pleased to announce it is applying for renewal of its 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. The Block Island Conservancy is proud to be accredited through the Land Trust Alliance. Accreditation is our way of ensuring we are held to the highest standard when conducting our work. We maintain our accreditation so that our members, supporters, and partners know they are standing behind a strong and honest organization. 

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how the Block Island Conservancy complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. For the full list of standards see
