Stakeholder Notification/Public Notice
January 7, 2020
The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet
national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever.
The Teton Regional Land Trust is pleased to announce it is applying for re-accreditation. The
public comment period is now open.
The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance,
conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies and programs. As the first Land Trust
accredited in Idaho, we are part of a network of 398 accredited land trusts across the nation
committed to professional excellence and to maintaining the public’s trust in its conservation
work. For the Teton Regional Land Trust, maintaining our accredited status shows our
the community we are committed to ensuring the highest standards for our conservation work and
demonstrates to our donors, landowners, and partners that we are a professional and
trustworthy partner in conservation.
Accredited land trusts must renew every five years, confirming their compliance with national
quality standards and providing continued assurance to donors and landowners of their
commitment to forever steward their land and easements. Almost 20 million acres of farms,
forests, and natural areas vital to healthy communities are now permanently conserved by an
accredited land trust.
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending
applications. Comments must relate to how the Teton Regional Land Trust complies with
national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a
land trust. For the full list of standards see http://www.landtrustaccreditation.org/help-and-
