Protecting & Exploring the Pinelands

Our Mission & Purpose

To preserve the Pine Barrens ecosystem, promote wide public engagement in their preservation, and advance acquisition of land and development rights by private and public conservation agencies.

In addition to this work, the Alliance has two initiatives: Pinelands Adventures, an outdoor recreation program aimed at fostering public understanding of and devotion to the Pinelands and Rancocas Creek Farm a sustainable, chemical-free farm connected to our mission to protect the Pinelands.

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.
