Thank you for considering membership in the California Council of Land Trusts. We look forward to learning more about your organization and the special lands and waters you are conserving. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.

CCLT’s membership consists of organizations that specifically support and advance the identity and reputation of California’s land trust community and land conservation generally. We seek and encourage land trusts to apply for membership who are engaged in and dedicated to sustainable land conservation, that conduct themselves in accordance with legal and equitable principles appropriate for non-profit organizations operating solely in the public interest, and that implement the highest standards and practices of non-profit charitable management.

Please review CCLT’s Membership Policy for information about membership, qualifications, process, criteria, and renewal. CCLT may ask for further information beyond what is provided with your application. The information you provide will be used for CCLT’s decision-making purposes and only in the aggregate for statistical purpose. CCLT reserves the sole and complete authority to make all decisions with regard to membership.

*If your land trust is accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, sharing the certificates as well as the date of the most recent accreditation reduces the length of the application and required materials.
