Regional Chapters

Membership with SER includes membership with the Chapter of your choice. Chapters are another great way to get the most out of your membership. Led by dedicated volunteers, SER Chapters focus on local issues and give members the opportunity meet and work with other restoration professionals, attend workshops, events and engage with the local community.

You can also consider joining one of our Sections, which are organized around a theme, rather than a geographical region. Similar to chapters, sections are run by a volunteer board and provide SER members with the opportunity to engage and share knowledge on a specific topic related to the field of restoration ecology.

Founded in 1999, SERA is infused with the energy of nearly 200 members located in 17 countries who are actively engaged in ecologically-sensitive repair and management of ecosystems through an unusually broad array of experience, knowledge sets and cultural perspectives.
