Land Trust Accreditation



In addition to our advocacy work, the Chattooga Conservancy is a recognized, accredited land trust.  We hold multiple conservation easements in cooperation with private landowners, that protect and preserve ecologically significant properties in perpetuity.  
To affirm the Chattooga Conservancy’s commitment to ethical conduct, sound finances, and the lasting stewardship of our land trust operations, we are seeking re-accreditation with the Land Trust Alliance, our nation’s leader in setting land trust standards and principles. The Land Trust Accreditation Commission (LTAC) is an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, and conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies and programs.
The Chattooga Conservancy is currently recognized, and is seeking renewal, as an accredited land trust by the LTAC.  As a part of the re-accreditation process, the LTAC invites public input and comments on all pending applications.  Comments must relate to how the Chattooga Conservancy complies with national land trust quality standards.  For the full list of standards see:

If you wish to learn more about the accreditation program, or to submit a comment, visit, or email your comment to Comments may also be faxed or mailed to the LTAC: (fax) 518-587-3183; (mail) 36 Phila Street, Suite 2, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.  Comments on the Chattooga Conservancy’s application will be most useful for the LTAC if submitted by January 21, 2021.
Thank you for your support of the Chattooga Conservancy’s work protecting and conserving ecologically valuable land.  Best wishes in this New Year!
