Dear Editor,

Eastern Sierra Land Trust (ESLT) is pleased to announce it is applying for national
accreditation. The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation
organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural
places and working lands forever. The public comment period is now open regarding
our conservation efforts in the Eastern Sierra. The Land Trust Accreditation
Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, conducts an extensive
review of each applicants policies and programs. This is a systematic and objective
verification process that shows how ESLT is using the highest standards possible in its
land conservation work. The accreditation process, which we are now fully engaged in,
has strengthened ESLTs policies and procedures, and made us a more efficient
organization.

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending
applications. Comments must relate to how ESLT complies with national quality
standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust.
For the full list of standards see http://www.landtrustaccreditation.org/getting-
accredited/indicator-practices.

To learn more about the accreditation program and to submit a comment, visit
http://www.landtrustaccreditation.org. Comments may be faxed or mailed to the Land
Trust Accreditation Commission, Attn: Public Comments: (fax) 518-587-3183; (mail)
112 Spring Street, Suite 204, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866. Comments on ESLTs
application will be most useful if received by the Commission by August 30, 2010.
