Protecting & Exploring the Pinelands

Our Mission

PPA is a 501(c)(3) organization devoted to preserving the natural and historic resources of the New Jersey Pinelands. In addition to this work, the Alliance has two initiatives. Pinelands Adventures, an outdoor recreation program aimed at fostering public understanding and devotion to the Pinelands. Rancocas Creek Farm a sustainable organic farm connected to our mission to protect the Pinelands.

Pinelands Preservation Alliance, Pinelands Adventures, and Rancocas Creek Farm are dedicated to furthering justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in their staff and their work. We want everyone to enjoy the benefits the Pinelands provides through low-impact nature recreation, clean air and water, and its unique scenic beauty. Join our team!
