‘Accreditation recognizes organizations for meeting national standards for excellence, upholding the public trust and ensuring that conservation efforts are permanent.’accreditation logo

In October 2012, CFT became one of only six Land Trusts in Connecticut, and one of 181 nationwide, to earn the coveted seal from the Land Trust Alliance Accreditation Commission. This independent certification of our standards and practices is perpetual insurance; we are doing things right so we can do them forever.

Protecting working land for the future is a lofty goal – becoming Accredited places us in a new class and serves as proof that we have the integrity to see that goal through. To learn more about Accreditation, please visit the Land Trust Accreditation Commission website.
