“SER is where one goes to be among the world experts in restoration.”- Nik Lopoukhine
SER and its members are addressing issues such as climate change, desertification, land and water degradation, and the associated loss of sustainable livelihoods. With over 3,000 members and partners across more than 75 countries, the Society is committed to providing resources, science and knowledge, professional networking, and strategic advocacy for the field of ecological restoration worldwide.
We offer several individual membership options in order to build an inclusive community for those passionate about ecological restoration in any manner, from professional to private supporter, citizen scientist, volunteer, and intrigued lifelong learner.
Memberships run on an annual basis unless otherwise noted. All fees listed in USD.
Membership in SER provides you with access to the tools, information, and professional network to support your critically important work. Our standard membership option is for individuals who are restoration professionals, passionate supporters, and lifelong learners. We encourage you to engage with SER. You will absolutely gain more than you give!
Annual Membership Fee$87 (Choose from 1-year, 2-year, and Annual Auto-Renew Options)
Membership for All Initiative
The Society embraces the principle that ecological restoration is an engaging and inclusive process that succeeds with full participation of all sectors of society wherever it is implemented across the world. Membership rates acknowledge that everyone does not have the same ability to pay. To reduce the cost barrier of SER membership for those with limited income, we now offer two additional membership rate options. The Equity and Open Doors rates are explicitly intended for those who could not otherwise afford to become a member of SER and these opportunities are provided on the honor system.
Equity Rate$25 (Choose from 1-year, 2-year, and Annual Auto-Renew Options)
Open Doors MembershipNo Fee*
*An Open Doors membership is available to anyone who would like to participate in the SER community, but who is unable to pay. This one-time membership requires approval from SER before benefits are activated.
For the Society and the field, it’s critically important to nurture the passion and interest of the next generation of restoration ecologists. Next generation restorationists bring innovative ideas and practices, creativity, and passion, which benefits all SER members. This category is geared towards students and those new to their career in ecological restoration (even though it may be a second or third career!)
Annual Membership Fee$36**
