In 2010 Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast was officially accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent commission of land conservation experts. The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever.
Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast is pleased to announce it has applied for renewal of accreditation, a process which happens every five years.
“Accreditation is the gold seal for a land trust and signifies good governance and excellent practices. It assures our supporters and the landowners, who generously protect their lands for all of our benefit, that Conservation Foundation is a sound investment with the means to protect land forever.” said Christine P. Johnson, President.
