ALC Earns National Recognition

One thing that unites us as a nation is land: Americans strongly support saving the open spaces they love. Since 1990, Aiken Land Conservancy, has been doing just that for our local community and beyond. Aiken Land Conservancy is proud to announce that our national accreditation has been renewed. We have proven once again that we are committed to professional excellence and to maintaining the public’s trust in our conservation work.

We are a stronger organization than ever for having gone through the rigorous accreditation renewal process. Our hard work and dedication means special places – such as the historic Winthrop Polo Field – will be protected forever, making Aiken, SC an even greater place for us and our children.

Aiken Land Conservancy provided extensive documentation and was subject to a comprehensive third-party evaluation prior to achieving this distinction. The Land Trust Accreditation Commission awarded renewed accreditation, signifying its confidence that Aiken Land Conservancy’s lands will be protected forever.

“It is exciting to recognize Aiken Land Conservancy’s continued commitment to national standards by renewing this national mark of distinction,” said Melissa Kalvestrand, executive director of the Commission. “Donors and partners can trust the more than 450 accredited land trusts across the country are united behind strong standards and have demonstrated sound finances, ethical conduct, responsible governance, and lasting stewardship.”
