Protect the Pinelands Teach In and Picnic
Time & Place
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm
Smithville Park, 803 Smithville Rd, Easthampton NJ 08060
Pipeline projects are being proposed to cut through the Pinelands, pumping toxic natural gas that threatens our communities, preserved land and pristine water resource. The Pinelands Pipeline was a first attempt by gas companies to shove pipelines through the Pinelands, and now New Jersey Natural Gas is attempting to build the Southern Reliability Link Pipeline through Burlington, Ocean and Monmouth communities and into the Pinelands.
Join Food and Water Watch for a Teach-in and Picnic at Smithville Park, part of the 48 Hours of Actions for Safe Clean Energy. Meet at the Visitor Center at the Main Park entrance on Meade Ln., off of Smithville Rd. We will walk to a nearby picnic area and gather for a brief teach-in on the dangers of pipelines and how we are going to stop future pipeline projects. Following the teach-in there will be an opportunity to pass out flyers and walk along the trails of Smithville Park.
We look forward to seeing you there! Feel free to bring friends. Please bring your own picnic lunch and comfortable walking shoes.

Pipelines and Pinelands Workshop
Time & Place
Pinelands Preservation Alliance, 17 Pemberton Road, Southampton, NJ 08088
We are holding a workshop in partnership with our friends at Food & Water Watch to help you speak out effectively against the pipelines proposed to cut through New Jersey’s Pinelands.
Assistant Executive Director for the Pinelands Preservation Alliance, Jaclyn Rhoads, will give an update on the status of the South Jersey Gas Pipeline and a new proposal by New Jersey Natural Gas called the Southern Reliability Link that would begin in Burlington County’s Chesterfield Township and travel through North Hanover, Upper Freehold, Plumsted, Manchester and Jackson Townships. Lena Smith from Food and Water Watch will discuss strategies that citizens like yourself can employ to take action and stop illegal pipeline projects.
This workshop will teach you how to speak out on these issues and how to work with your town to pass a resolution opposing these projects. We hope you can join us.

UPDATE on South Jersey Gas Pipeline
South Jersey Gas requested that the NJ Department of Environment Protection (DEP) review their eight proposed pipeline routes to get natural gas to the BL England plant and the DEP stated that the route through the Pinelands that was denied by the state Pinelands Commission in January 2014 is the preferred route in their analysis.

Rally for the Pinelands
Time & Place
8:30 am to 11:30 am
Tell New Jersey – The Pinelands Belong to the Public!
The Pinelands National Reserve wasn’t created as a pathway for the construction of natural gas pipelines. It wasn’t preserved to serve as an Off-Road Vehicle Park and it doesn’t have an endless supply of clean water. Yet our state agencies and elected representatives are working to undo over 35 years of Pinelands protections.
Rally for the Pines on March 14th
Time: 8:30 am to 11:30 am
Location: New Jersey State Capital, Trenton NJ
A coalition of environmental organizations, residents impacted by natural gas pipeline projects, activists, and concerned citizens are organizing a march and rally in Trenton to demand that our state legislators and state agencies ENFORCE and STRENGTHEN Pinelands regulations.
Join us on March 14th in Trenton NJ. We will march down State Street in the morning and then rally at the Statehouse. Following the rally participants will be able to find their representative and deliver a personal message. Carpooling will be coordinated.
Sponsored by the Pinelands Preservation Alliance, New Jersey Chapter of the Sierra Club, Food & Water Watch NJ, the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions (ANJEC), the New Jersey Conservation Foundation and the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters.

Pinelands Pipelines - Where do we go from here?
Time & Place
7:00PM - 8:00PM
In 2017 alone two pipelines projects were approved for the Pinelands and over 12 more projects are under consideration in New Jersey. Governor Christie's antics at the Pinelands Commission have weakened the agency and left a door open for future gas companies to try and build pipelines in the Pinelands. With a new governor being sworn in in January, this webinar will look at where we go from here. How do we address the climate crisis and the pipeline expansion that is threatening open spaces in New Jersey? Hear from Pinelands Preservation Alliance Policy Advocate Katie Smith and Food & Water Watch Organizer Lena Smith about what's to come for the Pinelands and New Jersey's energy future. Learn what you can do to take action at the local level to build the clean energy revolution!
