Public Comment Open: Application for Renewal of Accreditation


Groundswell Conservancy will be applying in May 2020 for renewed accreditation by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, our national trade association.

The Land Trust Accreditation Commission conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies and programs. “Maintaining our accreditation ensures our supporters and partners that Groundswell Conservancy meets the highest ethical and stewardship standards,” said Greg Hyer, Board President.

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Groundswell Conservancy complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. Click here for the full list of standards.

To learn more about the accreditation program, visit Land Trust Accreditation Commission. You may email your comment to or mail them to the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, Attn: Public Comments, 36 Phila Street, Suite 2, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.

Comments on Groundswell Conservancy’s application will be most useful by June 19, 2020.
