Land trust recognized

The Olympia-based Capitol Land Trust has received national accreditation from the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, one of 238 nonprofit land trusts to receive this recognition since 2008.

The award confirms that the Capitol Land Trust meets nationals standards for excellence, upholds the public trust and engages in conservation efforts that are permanent.

The success of the land trust, including protection of 5,000 acres of fish and wildlife habitat over the past 26 years, will be celebrated 7 a.m., Feb. 11, at the land trust's 10th Annual Conservation Breakfast at the Marcus Pavilion at Saint Martin's University in Lacey.
