Ojai Valley Land Conservancy Seeks National Accreditation

To the OVLC, accreditation is important because it ensures that we have the policies, procedures, and practices to protect our conservation lands in perpetuity.

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Ojai Valley Land Conservancy complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. For the full list of standards see
