The Hudson Highlands Land Trust (HHLT) announced that it has achieved renewed land trust accreditation from the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance.
“This achievement demonstrates our commitment to permanent land conservation that benefits the entire community,” said HHLT Executive Director Andy Chmar. “We are especially pleased that the Commission commended our land trust for being fully compliant in all 26 practices examined in their review, a perfect outcome, which underscores HHLT’s strict adherence to the Land Trust Standards and Practices.”
Now in its 25th year, the Hudson Highlands Land Trust is dedicated to the protection of the natural resources, scenic beauty and rural character of the Hudson Highlands. The Land Trust has partnered with private landowners and conservation groups to protect over 2,100 acres of land within its mission area, which includes the Towns of Cornwall, Highlands, Philipstown and Putnam Valley and the villages located therein.
