The Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art is pleased to announce it is applying for renewal of its land trust accreditation. The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. As part of the reaccreditation process, a public comment period is now open for Brandywine’s application.

The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies and programs every five years. “Accreditation ensures that the Brandywine Conservancy holds itself to the highest professional standards in the land trust field,” said Stephanie Armpriester, Brandywine’s Director of Land Conservation and Stewardship. “Accreditation also provides confidence to our landowners, constituents, members and donors that we are a trusted organization that can responsibly fulfill the promise of preserving and stewarding our working and natural resources for generations to come.”

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art complies with national quality standards, which address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust.

Comments can be submitted online, emailed to [email protected], or mailed to: Land Trust Accreditation Commission, Attn: Public Comments, 36 Phila Street, Suite 2, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.  The deadline for comments on the Brandywine’s application is July 1, 2024.
