Community Partners

The following organizations work hand in hand with GVLT to conserve open spaces and enhance and expand our community trail system. These public and private partnerships are what make our work possible. Also see our Business Sponsors.

Land Trust Alliance Accreditation

In 2008, we became one of the first accredited land trusts in the nation. The Land Trust Accreditation Commission renewed GVLT’s accreditation in 2013 and again in 2019. The accreditation seal recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national standards for excellence, uphold the public trust and ensure that conservation efforts are permanent.

The Land Trust Accreditation Commission awards the seal to community institutions that demonstrate the ability to protect important natural place and working lands in perpetuity. The Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance established in 2006, is governed by a volunteer board of diverse land conservation and nonprofit management experts from around the country.
