Pinelands Community Network

The Community Network is a group of engaged citizens coordinated by the Pinelands Preservation Alliance.


Every year, PPA is engaged in many advocacy and legal battles with polluters and irresponsible developers. Many of these cases start with a tip from watchful residents like you. To better anticipate, recognize, and respond to development projects or other detrimental activities occurring in your communities, we need your help!

Join the Pinelands Community Network!

GET INVOLVED Protecting the Pinelands requires the joint effort of citizens, nonprofit organizations, experts and dedicated officials. We welcome many levels of involvement which can range from simply getting to know your neighbors better to regularly attending your local planning/zoning board and town council meetings. Other actions can include rallies, public hearings, and letter writing campaigns for example. We provide an opportunity for YOU to make a difference.

MEETINGS are held on a rotating basis among the different Pinelands counties. These in-person gatherings are meant to foster social connection and connect based on shared interests and concerns. Members are highly encouraged to attend the meeting that is specific to their county (1-2 per year), but are also welcome at other county meetings. Each meeting will feature at least one local NGO to help lead a discussion on county-specific issues, such as warehouse construction, illegal dumping, and flooding.

TRAININGS are held semi-annually to provide specific advocacy skills or conservation knowledge.

KEEP THE CONVERSATION GOING through our online community, where members can share resources, ask questions, and raise the alarm about concerning things happening in their communities. More information about the online community coming soon.
