It's a Sign of the Pines began as a conversation among friends sitting in a Piney bar: how could we bring like-minded people together to celebrate and maintain the cultural richness of the New Jersey Pine Barrens? Fifteen years ago our first weekend gathering, entitled Lines on the Pines, brought together a few authors, anarchaeologist and a photographer whose work reflected or was influenced by the Pines. The annual event has become a much anticipated networking opportunity for presenters and for local community members who attend by the hundreds to talk with authors about the newest Pine Barren's themed book, and now to look over hand-made jewelry made from nineteenth-century Jersey glass slag, or just chat about the Pines. Nine years ago It's a Sign of the Pines began a second event, Lines on the Pines for KIDS Goes to College! During a one-day event, Pinelands-themed classes were offered to children aged 6-12 in Stockton's Kramer Hall in Hammonton, NJ. Both events reflected the core mission of It's a Sign of the Pines: to celebrate the authors, history, and the arts and humanities of the NJ Pine Barrens. Now, the two events are combined into one big event.  

Lines on the Pines 2020 is proud to offer once again - The PB&J's or The Pine Barrens and Juniors program. This is a unique opportunity for KIDS to learn about the NJ Pine Barrens and earn a patch at this annual event.  Mike McCormick, of South Jersey Trails, has developed a booklet for Junior Explorers detailing the mission and the pledge of the PB&J Program.

This year the theme for KIDS is "Owls of the New Jersey Pine Barrens" which encourages KIDS of all ages, to learn about owls. Shannon Askins, a local graphite artist has put together a stunning collection of original drawings of NJ owls in a book, "Owls of the New Jersey Pine Barrens." This book will be available for folks to purchase. During the day, KIDS will have different activities that will enable them to learn more aboutowls and other live animals, snakes, birds of prey, in the Pine Barrens as well as meet our mascots, the crisis response dogs.  In addition, some fun activities will include basket weaving, face painting, use of the giant Word Board to create words relating directly to the Pine Barrens and making pine cone owls.

Our sponsors, AtlantiCare - A member of Geisinger, Stockton University School of Arts and Humanities and the South Jersey Culture & History Center, ACUA, Plexus Publishing, NJM Insurance Group and others offer support in making the event a huge success. This year, we welcome back, Paul Evans Pedersen, Nicki Giberson, Kathy English, Rich, Mary & Steven Carty, Josh Westcott, Nance Jo Luciani, Heather Hires, Holly Doyle, Kirk Jarvis and over 80 more artists, authors, historians, historical societies and groups.

Dinner following the daylong event highlights speaker Linda Stanton, Founder and President of It's a Sign of the Pines, who will present "A 2020 Vision Leads to a Wise Decision."  The presentation will include the development of this 15 year-old program, its accomplishments and history. On hand, will also be several "Pine Barrens Celebrities" who will speak briefly on what Lines on the Pines means to them.
