    Calling Atlantic, Cumberland, Cape May, and Gloucester County Residents:

    Join us at the Ocean City Library in Meeting Room 116 and learn how to be a part of Pinelands Watch.

    Pinelands Watch is an activist network run by the Pinelands Preservation Alliance. Individuals in the Pinelands Watch network are kept up to date on Pinelands issues, engage with local planners and officials and advocate for Pinelands protections. You will play a key role in advocating for the protection of the Pinelands National Reserve.

    The Pinelands Watch network is organized by county and we are kicking off our first county meetings on March 20th at the Ocean City Public Library in Ocean City, NJ and April 4th at the offices of the Pinelands Preservation Alliance in Southampton NJ.

    Join us at the launch of the county Pinelands Watch network to collect resources for getting involved and to connect with other activists from your area.

    At this meeting we will:

    • Cover the organization, appointment processes, and recent actions of the Pinelands Commission
    • Describe how Pinelands Commissioners are appointed
    • Discuss your priorities and what you need to see from your freeholders, the Pinelands Commission, and other municipal bodies.
    • Develop tactics and a plan to begin taking action on those priorities
    • Provide resources and information to help you in your actions

    We will conclude by making calls and writing letters to freeholders and gubernatorial candidates to demand the Pinelands are protected properly.
