Land trust seeking public comment

Bloomington-based nonprofit conservation organization Sycamore Land Trust, which protects 11,418 acres of land in southern Indiana, is currently applying for reaccreditation with the Land Trust Alliance.

Comments must express how Sycamore Land Trust complies with quality standards which address the ethical operation of the land trust.
