SANTA ROSA, CALIF. ­— Sonoma Land Trust has been presented with the Land Trust Alliance’s 2019 National Land Trust Excellence Award. The Land Trust Alliance (LTA), a national land conservation organization working to save the places people need and love by strengthening land conservation across America, represents more than 1,000 land trusts nationwide, including Sonoma Land Trust. Each year, a leading land trust organization is honored by LTA for excelling in one or more of the following areas: broadening support for land conservation, outstanding collaboration, and outstanding communications, education and outreach.

The award was presented to Sonoma Land Trust staff and board members at LTA’s recent National Land Conservation Conference held in Raleigh, North Carolina. “It’s a privilege to give Sonoma Land Trust some of the recognition they deserve,” says Andrew Bowman, LTA’s president and CEO.

“Receiving this honor is an especially proud moment for Sonoma Land Trust and the marvelous community of volunteers, supporters and partners who were crucial in making it possible,” says Eamon O’Byrne, Sonoma Land Trust executive director. “Such peer recognition confirms that we are national leaders in protecting land for all … forever.”
