Historical Organization of the Week: Pinelands Preservation Alliance

Every Monday, I highlight a non-profit related to history or the arts, a historical society, preservation group or friends group whose main objective is to promote the historical and artistic history of New Jersey.

This week, I am featuring the Pinelands Preservation Alliance. Founded in 1989, the Alliance is dedicated to saving and protecting the natural and cultural resources of the environmentally sensitive Pinelands of New Jersey. The Alliance supports the Pinelands Protection Act and Comprehensive Management Plan, and continually seeks to improve these and other environmental laws to better protect the Pinelands’ natural and historic resources.

The Alliance is headquartered at the historic Bishop Farmstead in Southampton, within the farmhouse that dates to 1753. From there, programs on ecology, historic preservation, and nature are held year-round at the farmhouse, which serves as a visitor center. The Alliance also sponsors walks, clean-ups, and contests to engage local residents and visitors in appreciating the Pinelands.

The Pinelands Preservation Alliance relies on memberships, fundraising, and countless volunteers to continue its mission. For more information on programs, exhibits, special events, and meetings hosted by the Pinelands Preservation Alliance or to become a member or volunteer, please call 609-859-8860 or visit
