Norfolk Land Trust Seeks Accreditation Renewal

The Norfolk Land Trust is applying for a second renewal of its national accreditation, a hard-to-obtain badge of honor bestowed on land trusts that demonstrate that they protect the public interest with sound and sustainable land transactions and stewardship, operate ethically and are accountable to donors and the public.

Accreditation is a mark of excellence and helps to provide credibility to donors and grantors. The Norfolk Land Trust was originally accredited in 2013 when only six of the then 104 land trusts in the state had achieved the distinction

Public comments may be submitted through September 20 and must relate to how the Norfolk Land Trust complies with national quality standards (see full list here.) To submit a comment click here or email the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. 

The Norfolk Land Trust, created in 1982, protects more than 4,000 acres of open space through conservation easements and owned preserves and maintains more than 20 miles of trails, all of which are open to the public.
