Each accredited land trust completes a rigorous review process and joins a network of organizations united by strong ethical practices. This trusted network of land trusts has demonstrated fiscal accountability, strong organizational leadership, sound transactions and lasting stewardship of the lands they conserve.
The seal is awarded by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance.
