Award-winning director Jared Flesher – a longtime NJ-SPJ member — is New Jersey’s leading environmental documentarian. Film festivals call his work “entertaining, illuminating and informative.” This time he’s taking on off-roading, a popular pastime in parts of the state, but one that is threatening endangered species in NJ’s famous Pine Barrens.
Outside of film festivals and live screenings, this is the first opportunity for the general public to watch the film.
The Story
Imagine the most serene wild place you've ever been. Now imagine a huge machine pulverizing this landscape, entirely for the fun of it. The serene wild place is the New Jersey Pine Barrens, and the huge machine is an illegal off-road vehicle. Pine Mud is a one-hour documentary film that follows the story of a young conservationist working to stop the damage to our public land.
We can do a better job of protecting this special place. We can.


Jared Flesher’s articles have been published online by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Christian Science Monitor and the Columbia Journalism Review.
