About Pinelands Preservation Alliance (PPA)

Pinelands Preservation Alliance is the leading voice for preserving the natural and historic resources of the New Jersey Pinelands through advocacy, constituency building, low-impact recreation, land conservation, public lands stewardship, and promoting sustainable farming. In addition to traditional advocacy, conservation and constituency-building activities, PPA operates Pinelands Adventures and Rancocas Creek Farm. Pinelands Adventures is the premier paddling outfitter in New Jersey’s Pine Barrens providing paddling trips, hikes and small group bus tours featuring Pine Barrens ecology, culture and history for the public, schools and groups. Rancocas Creek Farm is a new chemical-free produce farm and CSA on 72 acres of land adjoining our headquarters. Working here means working to protect a unique and fragile ecosystem that provides drinking water for millions of people, beautiful places to recreate, and habitats for globally unique communities of wildlife and plants.

PPA is dedicated to furthering justice, equity, diversity and inclusion in its staff and its work. We want everyone to know the Pinelands’ natural resources are protected for the benefit of everyone. We seek to help people of all backgrounds to experience this natural treasure. More information about PPA is available at www.pinelandsalliance.org.
