Volunteer with SEMPBA and help save the Pine Barrens of Southeastern Massachusetts!

SEMPBA is building a network of public and private organizations and individuals to raise awareness and engage the community in programs and projects to conserve and restore the Pine Barrens of Southeastern Massachusetts. We are all volunteers. It's going to take a lot of volunteers to save the ecoregion. Please join us.
