Introducing the Society for Ecological Restoration Great Basin Chapter
The Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) has long been responsible for the promotion of ecological restoration across the world and across academic disciplines. SER has long had strong U.S. chapter programs, including the Pacific Northwest, California, Western and Rocky Mountain Chapters. But even with these numerous chapters, there was one glaring ecoregional hole in the Society's chapter structure: the Great Basin. Several years in the making, Nancy Shaw at the United States Forest Service and many others have recently introduced the SER Great Basin Chapter. This chapter is not based on political boundaries, but the entire Great Basin ecoregion.
The Great Basin Chapter has a brochure here and a full-fledged website here. Please consider joingin up if you're interested in restoration and ecology within the Great Basin!
