Protecting & Exploring the Pinelands

Our Mission & Purpose

To preserve the Pine Barrens ecosystem, promote wide public engagement in the preservation and enjoyment of natural resources, and advance acquisition of land and development rights for conservation.
We seek to connect people with nature by promoting universal and equitable enjoyment of the benefits of our natural resources.

With Pinelands Adventures and The Pinelands Is for Everyone, we help people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities explore nature through health-giving recreation – and so develop a genuine devotion to environmental protection.
Through Rancocas Creek Farm, our regenerative vegetable farm, we are developing an array of projects and partnerships to increase sustainable farming and bring healthy food from local farmers to all South Jersey families.

We are dedicated to furthering justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in our staff and our work. Everyone should have access to recreation, clean air and water and the scenic beauty the Pinelands provides. Read our justice, equity, diversity and inclusion vision statement.
