The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. The Edmund Niles Huyck Preserve ( the Huyck Preserve) is pleased to announce it is applying for 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. “By committing to follow the Land Trust Alliance’s rigorous standards" said Susan Kessler, President of the Board, "we are showing our membership and community that we believe in strong ethical practices and fiscal discipline. These are the prerequisite to lasting conservation and stewardship of the land that has been entrusted to us over the years".
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how The Huyck Preserve complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. For the full list of standards seehttp://www.landtrustaccreditation.org/help-and-resources/indicator-practices.
