Accreditation Awarded by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission
What Does It Mean?
The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, announced that the Lowcountry Open Land Trust (LOLT) has been awarded accredited status as of August 29, 2012.
Accreditation lets the public know that the land trust has undergone an extensive, external review of the governance and management of its organization and the systems and policies it uses to protect land. LOLT is one of only 181 land trusts from across the country that has been awarded accreditation since the fall of 2008.
Accreditation is voluntary and the accreditation seal is a mark of distinction in land conservation. To read more about accreditation, go to http://www.landtrustaccreditation.org.
