The Southeastern Massachusetts Pine Barrens Alliance, Inc. (SEMPBA) is a recently formed non–profit volunteer group dedicated to preserving the globally rare eco region of the Coastal Atlantic Pine Barrens of southeastern Massachusetts. The region contains the world’s 2nd largest remaining Pine Barrens habitat that supports a number of threatened or endangered animal and plant species, some of which occur only in southeastern Massachusetts.
To help support their mission, ELA has recently formed an alliance with SEMPBA to help promote the important work being done to educate and preserve the Pine Barrens. SEMPBA recently hosted Pinefest, a day of fun and playful learning at Myles Standish State Forest, in Carver to expand awareness of the Greater Pine Barrens of Southeastern Massachusetts.

Accomplished through valuable collaborations and the help of many volunteers, July 2013 marked the first ELA Community Action Project.
“What a transformation!” was a typical comment from the South End residents who passed by our work site: 29 Dartmouth Street.
Earlier this year, the Ecological Landscaping Association and the Landscape Institute of the Boston Architectural College were looking for an opportunity to perform a community service project that would create a hands-on educational opportunity, result in positive neighborhood change, and bring together their constituencies.
