Sonoma Land Trust attains national accreditation
Your land trust is celebrating the fact that our application for accreditation has been approved by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. Sonoma Land Trust is now one of only 207 land trusts across the country to have been awarded accreditation since the first land trusts were accredited in 2008. Read more
Being an accredited land trust allows Sonoma Land Trust to display this accreditation seal, a mark of distinction in land conservation, indicating that we meet national standards for excellence, uphold the public trust and ensure that conservation efforts are permanent.
We’re working to protect Estero Ranch
We hope to close soon on 547-acre Estero Ranch, which offers both Estero Americano frontage and Pacific coastline from which one can enjoy views of Point Reyes, Bodega Head and Doran Beach. Stay tuned for more information as the deal progresses.
