Brandywine Conservancy & Museum Of Art, Chester County, Seeks Renewal Of Accreditation Thru Land Trust Alliance

The Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art in Chester County Thursday announced 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.
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 holds itself to the highest professional standards in the land trust field. It provides confidence to our landowners, constituents, members and donors that this organization can responsibly fulfill the promise of preserving and stewarding our working and natural resources for generations to come,” said Ellen Ferretti, Director of the Brandywine Conservancy.
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.
For the full list of standards or to learn more about the accreditation program, please visit the Land Trust Accreditation Commission website.  
Comments can be submitted online, emailed to:,  faxed to 518-587-3183 or mailed to: Land Trust Accreditation Commission, Attn: Public Comments, 36 Phila Street, Suite 2, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
