Do something: Pinelands Photography, Pinelands adventures tours

Residents can kick off the holiday season in Moorestown on Friday night or check out one of the longest running tattoo conventions down in Atlantic City this weekend. Find out what other activities and events are on the docket for this weekend.

In the Pinelands

  • Join Pinelands Adventures on a small group driving tour to visit many places described in John McPhee’s landmark book The Pine Barrens. While most of the characters that McPhee profiled have since passed on many years ago, many of the places he wrote about have remained largely unchanged. They’ve remained that way in large part because McPhee’s book challenged citizens and political leaders to find a way to protect the unique Pine Barrens ecosystem and culture from development that loomed on the horizon at the time. Participants in this tour will travel by van making stops and taking short hikes at places like Paisley, Apple Pie Hill, Hog Wallow and the Forks on the Mullica. $60 per person. For more information visit http://www.pinelandsalliance.org/calendar/.
  • Please join us for the opening of a stunning photography exhibit celebrating the New Jersey Pinelands National Reserve which will be displayed in our newly renovated 1932 Louden barn. Browse the new exhibit, enjoy wine, beer, light appetizers and acoustic music by The Pitch Pines. Awards for the winning photographs in each category will be presented during the reception. Free, no RSVP required. For more information visit http://www.pinelandsalliance.org/calendar/.
