SER World Conferences

Our bi-annual world conferences are the lifeblood of the Society, as they provide our members (and non-members) with the opportunity to exchange ideas and information, participate in activities such as workshops and field trips, reconnect with friends and colleagues, and make new acquaintances. In addition, the Society co-sponsors several conferences each year, and many of our Chapters offer regional meetings and conferences.

Please visit our Events Calendar for SER and SER Chapter meetings, conferences, workshops, and other events.

The Society convened its 4th World Conference on Ecological Restoration in Merida, Mexico on August 21-25, 2011. The conference was a success, convening nearly 1,000 delegates from 60 countries. Two years from now, we will celebrate our 25th Anniversary in Madison, Wisconsin, the Society’s birthplace. We hope you will join us at this exciting event!
