WPC is an Accredited Land Trust
Western Pennsylvania Conservancy is an accredited land trust. First accredited in February 2012, we recently renewed our land trust accreditation in August 2017 with the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance.
The commission oversees the land trust accreditation, which is a rigorous process to ensure that conservation organizations, such as the Conservancy, adhere to the highest standards and practices for both organizational governance and conducting real estate transactions.
Our accreditation demonstrates to our members, donors, partners, foundations, policymakers, and the communities in which we work, that we display professionalism, ethical standards and excellence in all our operations.
