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.

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.

UPDATE October 26, 2018:
On Monday, October 22nd we held a press conference in Trenton to call on Governor Phil Murphy to fulfill his campaign promise, and duty as Governor, to make changes to the Pinelands Commission.
We were joined by a coalition of New Jersey’s major environmental organizations who signed a joint letter to the Governor outlining the change that is desperately needed if the Pinelands are to survive into the future. You can read our press release here.
Organizations that support the effort to fix the Pinelands Commission include:
Pinelands Preservation Alliance, Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions, American Littoral Society, Citizens United for Renewable Energy (CURE), Clean Water Action, Environment New Jersey, Food and Water Watch, New Jersey Audubon, New Jersey Conservation Foundation, New Jersey Highlands Coalition, New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, New Jersey Sierra Club, People Over Pipelines, Save Barnegat Bay and The Watershed Institute are calling on Governor Murphy to reform the Commission now.
The event was live streamed on Facebook and can be found here.
The event received good media coverage, with articles from the Burlington County Times, NJ Spotlight, Insider NJ, the Asbury Park Press, and the Press of Atlantic City.
