LCSLO Applies for National Accreditation: Open For Public Comment

The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County (LCSLO) is pleased to announce that we will be submitting our application for accreditation this September.

The public comment period is open now through October 25th.

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 process we have undergone in preparing for accreditation has been extremely beneficial to all areas of our organization. We are a smarter and more efficient land trust because of it.” –Kaila Dettman, Executive Director

As a part of the Commission’s review of each land trust, the Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how LCSLO 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,or call our office at 544-9096 for more details.
