Western Reserve Land Conservancy has achieved national recognition, joining a group of accredited land conservancies that have demonstrated their commitment to professional excellence and maintaining the public’s trust in their work.
The conservancy is one of 1,363 land trusts in the United States. Only 400 of those are nationally accredited, and only six of those are in Ohio, including the Western Reserve Land Conservancy.
“We are extremely honored to receive this national recognition that positions us among the most credible land conservancies in the country,” said Pete McDonald, director of land stewardship at Western Reserve Land Conservancy, in a news release. “Earning this accreditation challenged us to be even better and enhances our ability to forever protect land and special places for future generations.”
