Celebration at the Pinelands Preservation Alliance


Join the Pinelands Preservation Alliance (PPA) on Friday, September 9th in the renovated barn at our offices to celebrate a unique and wonderful partnership. PPA has been working with Allies in Caring (AIC) for the past four years to connect more people with the Pinelands landscape. Allies in Caring, based in Hammonton, is commemorating its 10th Anniversary of providing mental health counseling and educational services for Latino, Deaf, and other underserved residents. Working with Allies in Caring helps PPA reach new audiences, and working with PPA helps Allies in Caring to connect its constituents with nature.

Our Partnership

Pinelands Preservation Alliance and Allies in Caring have been working together to expand our reach beyond what people typically think of as an “environmental” concern or a “social service” issue. We share a belief that enjoying natural places and connecting with the natural world is good for everyone’s physical and mental health – and it creates new advocates for the Pinelands.  Together, we are breaking down barriers and working to improve the physical and mental health of our communities through joint programs held for youth and adults in the Pinelands.

We will celebrate a unique and growing partnership dedicated to connecting underserved families with their Pinelands landscape, improving mental health, and promoting nature as a source of health for everyone.  We’ll also have a lot of fun getting together, talking, and sharing great food.
