Just in case you aren not on their e-mail list, this is just in from the Pinelands Preservation Alliance. I have attended man of their events and a visit to the Bishop Farmstead, their book store, and auditorium is always delightful. I plan to attend this one and hope you do too!

PPA's visitor center will be open and light refreshments will be available. This event is free to the public and is family friendly.
