Notification of Comment Period for the Houston Audubon Society’s Land Trust Renewal of Accreditation Application

April 22nd, 2022

Houston Audubon Society is pleased to announce it is applying for renewal of accreditation by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance that recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards. Accreditation provides the public with the assurance that the land trust displaying the accreditation seal meets established standards for organizational quality and permanent land conservation.

The Commission is currently conducting an extensive review of our policies and programs, and a public comment period is now open. The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Houston Audubon complies with national quality standards.

These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust.
