At approximately 1.1 million acres, the New Jersey Pinelands National Reserve is the largest forested area on the Eastern Seaboard between Maine and the Florida Everglades. It encompasses 22% of this crowded state. Established in 1978 as our nation’s first National Reserve, it was also designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Despite being located in the most densely populated state in the nation, most people know little about this natural treasure. We held a very special Zoom event, “Lenses on the Pinelands – A Journey of Discovery” in February to help show off the beauty of the Pines.
Photographer Richard Lewis shared his experiences and insights on how to capture that perfect image. We hope you enjoy the recording:
