Tall Timbers Up for Second Accreditation Renewal

The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. Tall Timbers is pleased to announce it is applying for renewal of 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. As one of the leading land trusts in the Southeast, Tall Timbers has conserved over 136,000 acres of land in North Florida and South Georgia. The organization became accredited in 2009 and renewed its accreditation in 2014. This second renewal of accreditation will ensure that the public can continue to trust Tall Timbers’ work in protecting the greater Red Hills region.

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Tall Timbers complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. For the full list of standards see http://www.landtrustaccreditation.org/help-and-resources/indicator-practices.
