For nearly three decades, the Pine Barrens Society´┐Żs principle function has been education.  The more that people know about the Pine Barrens, the more they appreciate them -- and the stronger their commitment to preservation.

The Society uses every medium and forum imaginable to spread understanding of the importance of this ecosystem.

We use print, radio and television. We use mail, public service announcements and the internet.  We make presentations in schools, for clubs and organizations and before government agencies and legislative bodies at local, regional state and federal levels. 

We involve the public through lectures, hikes, contests and special programs.  We publish a dramatic and informative newsletter three times-a-year, and produce a 30-minute television program which airs weekly on Cablevision channel 20 (a new program is shown every month).  Click here to view this month's program streaming online! 

Make sure to visit Bridge to the Barrens, our interactive education portal that is being used by parents, teachers and students Island-wide to learn more about the Pine Barrens and have a little fun!
