Past SER Conferences

The first SER conference was held in Oakland, California in 1989, and this began a series of annual meetings that continued until 2005. That year, the Society switched to a biennial conference cycle with a broader international focus, celebrating the 1st World Conference on Ecological Restoration in Zaragoza, Spain. SER has since held World Conferences in San Jose, California (2007); Perth, Australia (2009); Merida, Mexico (2011); and Madison, Wisconsin (2013).
