Volume XX | Month Day 20XX
We have two special announcements to share!
River Parkway Trust Earns National Recognition
I am thrilled to announce that the River Parkway Trust has renewed our land trust accreditation - proving once again that, as part of a network of over 400 accredited land trusts across the nation, we are committed to professional excellence and to maintaining the public's trust in our conservation work.

Over the last 30 years the Trust has worked with 18 conservation-minded landowners to protect 2,864 acres of riparian habitat, working farms and ranches.

The Trust provided extensive documentation and was subject to a comprehensive third-party evaluation prior to achieving this distinction. The Land Trust Accreditation Commission awarded renewed accreditation, signifying its confidence that Parkway lands will be protected forever.

We are a stronger organization for having gone through the rigorous accreditation renewal process. And we look forward to the next 30 years of land conservation along the San Joaquin River Parkway.

Thank you for your support.
