Northern Neck Land Conservancy earns national recognition

Posted on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at 2:16 pm

One thing that unites this nation is land: Americans strongly support saving the open spaces they love.  Since 2004, the Northern Neck Land Conservancy has been doing just that for the people of the Northern Neck. Now that NNLC has announced it has renewed its land trust accreditation – proving once again that, as part of a network of over 400 accredited land trusts across the nation – it is committed to professional excellence and to maintaining the public’s trust in its conservation work.

“Renewing our accreditation shows NNLC’s ongoing commitment to permanent land conservation in the five counties of the Northern Neck and Essex County, Virginia” said Kirwan King, NNLC President. “We are a stronger organization than ever for having gone through the rigorous accreditation renewal process. Our strength means special places – such as the Northern Neck– will be protected forever, making it an even greater place for us and our children.”

NNLC provided extensive documentation and was subject to a comprehensive third-party evaluation prior to achieving this distinction. In its review, the Land Trust Alliance gave a special commendation to the Northern Neck Land Conservancy for “extraordinary commitment to excellence, trust, and permanence in land conservation.”
