The Land Trust Alliance Accreditation Program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places forever. Western Wildlife Corridor (WWC) is pleased to announce that it is applying for accreditation in 2020. A public comment period is now open.

The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies and programs.
