Pinelands Watch Network

Pinelands Watch is an activist network run by the Pinelands Preservation Alliance. The mission is to help those who are concerned about conservation issues in the Pinelands to get involved and make a difference.

Protecting the Pinelands and other natural places in New Jersey requires the joint effort of citizens, nonprofit organizations, experts and dedicated decision-makers. We hope you will join our activist network, Pinelands Watch.

Join the Pinelands Watch Activist Network Today!

Citizens 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 network is organized by county and we are holding our first county meetings on March 20 and April 4 with more to be scheduled.

Right now our focus is on the seven Pinelands Counties - Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Ocean.
