Public Notice of Land Trust Accreditation

To our Friends and Supporters,

The Tiverton Land Trust is pleased to announce that it is applying for accreditation renewal. The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. A public comment period on TLT’s renewal application 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. TLT is committed to operating according to the highest standards. TLT’s accreditation in 2014 verified that we meet those standards in our written policies and procedures and in our operations.

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Tiverton 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-resources/indicator-practices.

To learn more about the accreditation program and to submit a comment, visit www.landtrustaccreditation.org, or email your comment to info@landtrustaccreditation.org. Comments may also be faxed or mailed to the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, Attn: Public Comments: (fax) 518-587-3183; (mail) 36 Phila Street, Suite 2, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.

Comments on Tiverton Land Trust’s application will be most useful if submitted by April 19, 2019.

Tiverton Land Trust launches fundraising for Main Road Vista Project

TLT has signed agreements to protect two highly visible properties along Main Road, just north of Pond Bridge Road. Without a conservation easement, 15 more acres of open fields and landscapes would be subdivided for new house lots. Time is short. Please help! We have only 90 days to raise $248,000 for both conservation easements. Your gifts will be matched dollar for dollar up to $40,000 through a challenge grant from an anonymous foundation. Click here for more information.
