June- SER relocated its main office from Tucson, Arizona to
Washington, DC. We now share offices with the Society for Conservation Biology, a key partner we hope to collaborate
with more closely in the future.
September- The SER Board of Directors convened its annual
meeting in Washington, DC and then held a 2-day strategic
planning retreat. While in Washington, the Board met with policymakers and administration officials to discuss restoration in the Gulf region and on public lands, and hosted a reception with national environmental organizations and government agencies.
October- SER actively participated in the tenth meeting of
the parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in Nagoya, Japan. The Society hosted a standing-room only side session
on ecological restoration and climate change adaption.
November- SER co-hosted a workshop in Grand Junction,
Colorado with the Wildlands Network that focused on develop-
ing strategies for integrating the fields of ecological restoration
and conservation biology in order to augment the capacity of restoration practitioners to plan and implement ecological
restoration projects with landscape-scale conservation goals
in mind. The results of this workshop will be presented at the SER2011 World Conference on Ecological Restoration to be held
in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico from August 21-25, 2011.
Registration for the SER2011 World Conference on Ecological Restoration opens January 15, 2011, and we hope you will join
us at this event. More information is available by visiting www.ser2011.org.
