In July 2020, the Land Trust Accreditation Commission announced that 47 land trusts have achieved initial or renewed accreditation. Among those renewing their accreditation were two Pennsylvania land trusts: Land Trust of Bucks County and Willistown Conservation Trust.

Accredited land trusts must renew every five years, confirming their compliance with national quality standards and providing continued assurance to donors and landowners of their commitment to forever steward their land and easements.  Almost 20 million acres of farms, forests and natural areas vital to healthy communities are now permanently conserved by an accredited land trust.
