Solano Land Trust Earns National Recognition
Accreditation Awarded by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission
After an extensive evaluation, Solano Land Trust has been awarded accreditation by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. Only 20 of the 150 California land trusts are currently accredited and Solano Land Trust is now the fourth in the Bay Area to receive this designation.
“Solano Land Trust’s accredited status demonstrates our commitment to permanent land conservation,” says Janet Mackey, Conservation Director. “Our land trust is a stronger organization today having gone through the rigorous accreditation program. We’ve waited for nearly a year to find out if we made it; we’re thrilled!”
Each accredited land trust submitted extensive documentation and underwent a rigorous review. “Through accreditation land trusts conduct important planning and make their operations more efficient and strategic,” said Tammara Van Ryn, founding Executive Director of the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. “Accredited organizations have engaged and trained citizen conservation leaders and improved systems for ensuring that their conservation work is permanent.”
