SER is dedicated to reversing this degradation and restoring the earth’s ecological balance for the benefit of humans and nature.

Growing Across Western Canada

This summer, a motion to expand the geographical scope of SER-BC was passed with the goals of furthering the science and practice of ecological restoration in Canada, increasing membership, and serving existing members who live and/or practice restoration outside of British Columbia.  SER-Western Canada encompasses BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the Yukon and Northwest Territories. Prior to the expansion of SER-BC, there was no SER chapter between the borders of BC and Ontario.

As part of the transition to becoming SER-WC, we are looking to expand our network. Please contact us if you know of any organizations, individuals, institutions, or businesses involved in restoration-related activities across Western Canada. This will help SER-WC begin to connect these people/groups, and continue supporting ecological restoration across Canada.
