The accreditation seal

A mark of distinction

The seal identifies land trusts that meet national quality standards for excellence, uphold the public trust, and ensure that conservation efforts are permanent. Accreditation is a rigorous third-party evaluation that ensures that our conservation work can last legally and financially and benefit the public, forever.

What the seal signifies


Standards and practices

Public Trust


An external, independent review provides assurance of FRLT's quality and permanence that you can trust



Lasting conservation

We have policies and systems in place to keep our promise of permanent land protection

FRLT in Action

Whether our kids stay or move away, they will understand things like, "Where does our drinking water come from? What affects that resource?" My kids will never forget these experiences. Outdoor learning fosters critical thinking, creativity, fun, and a real-world context for learning.
