After an extensive evaluation, the Northcoast Regional Land Trust has been awarded accreditation by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. NRLT is one of 230 land trusts from across the country that has been awarded accreditation since the fall of 2008. “Accredited land trusts account for 52% of the 20,645,165 acres currently owned in fee or protected by a conservation easement held by a land trust,” said Land Trust Accreditation Commission Executive Director Tammara Van Ryn. “Accreditation provides the public with an assurance that accredited land trusts meet high standards for quality and that the results of their conservation work are permanent.” “We are proud that we have been able to earn the distinction of the accreditation seal; it is a testament to the quality of the organization and the work that we do,” stated Rees Hughes, board member of the Northcoast Regional Land Trust. “Any time that you are dealing with things in perpetuity the organization has to be strong.
