Thank you to our Partners and Supporters:
Pine Fest is sponsored by the Southeastern Pine Barrens Alliance and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and the Massachusetts Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, and by the Town of Plymouth Promotions Fund.
Pine Fest is supported through the generosity of the Massachusetts Cultural Councils of the towns of Carver, Bridgewater, Kingston, Plympton, Plymouth, Duxbury, Rochester, Middleborough, Rochester, and the Massachusetts Cultural Council Festivals Fund.
Environmental Learning is fun, exciting and healthy!
Educating ourselves, our neighbors and everyone who comes into the area about the globally rare ecology of southeastern Massachusetts is critical to preserving the character and wildlife of the Atlantic Coastal Pine Barrens Ecoregion.
Pine Fest will give those who know and love the Pine Barrens a chance to share their passion with you in the beautiful Myles Standish State Forest.
All learning activities, entertainment and demonstrations at Pine Fest will engage both children and adults in explorations into:
- Local Culture: How people past and present depend on, interact with and understand the land;
- Local Ecology: What makes SE Mass so special;
- Sustainable Recreation: Come outside and have some fun!
- Healthy Living: protecting ecosystems while we take care of our human needs.
