Description

~ The Pinelands Preservation Alliance (PPA) is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to saving the Pinelands of New Jersey. ~

We use advocacy and education to involve the public and persuade government to protect the natural and cultural resources of this extraordinary region. We support the Pinelands Protection Act and Comprehensive Management Plan, and we seek to improve these and other environmental laws to better protect the Pinelands' natural and historic resources.

We serve as the public's watch-dog over government, going to meetings and analyzing the actions and documents that most citizens cannot monitor on their own. Drawing on the energy and creativity of staff and volunteers, we focus on protecting the water, wetlands and forests that make the Pine Barrens a globally unique ecosystem.

We take people out into the Pine Barrens to show them first-hand how beautiful and fascinating this landscape is. We work with teachers and students to bring the Pinelands into school curricula. And we work with citizens to hold government accountable for saving the Pinelands. More information about PPA is available at our website.
