Pinelands Heritage Partnership
The purpose of the Pinelands Heritage Partnership (PHP), a new effort led by Pinelands Preservation Alliance and Preservation New Jersey, is to develop an initial policy and education agenda to better promote the preservation and maintenance of the Pinelands' historic resources.
The new Pinelands Heritage Partnership is designed to assist and empower Pinelands area historical societies, house museums and historic sites, historical commissions, downtown management organizations and other groups and volunteers to foster the preservation, interpretation and public use of the important historic sites in the Pinelands. As anticipated, the Partnership will offer local activists more information, resources and the ability to network more readily with their peers. This effort, to build the Pinelands Historic Preservation Partnership, is being undertaken with the full cooperation of Preservation New Jersey (PNJ), the only statewide nonprofit, organized to advocate and educate about New Jersey's historic resources. We believe by partnering with PNJ we can further advance the preservation movement in this region and in the state and hope you agree.
