Accredited land trusts are granted the ability to use the accreditation seal. The seal gives the land trust public recognition that it is carrying out the practices from Land Trust Standards and Practices that indicate it is operating in an ethical, legal and technically sound manner. This recognition gives the land trust enhanced credibility and respect from donors, partners, members and the public. In addition, the preparation and application process affords applicants the opportunity to review and implement policies that will help streamline their operations and lead to more effective land conservation.
