The Central Indiana Land Trust has achieved national recognition by becoming the first accredited land trust in the State of Indiana. This makes the Central Indiana Land Trust one of only 181 land trusts across the country to become accredited since the program began.
The accreditation was granted by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission which is an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance. The Land Trust Accreditation Commission was incorporated in April 2006 with the goal of building and recognizing strong land trusts, fostering public confidence in land conservation, and to help ensure the long-term protection of land.
Preparing and applying for accreditation takes a significant commitment of time from the board and staff. The Commission conducts an extensive review of the application and grants accreditation – and the right to use the accreditation seal – to land trusts that meet the practices.
Congratulations to the Central Indiana Land Trust for achieving this honor!
