Abstract

The Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) is the largest professional organization dedicated to restoration, internationally (www.ser.org). SER promotes ecological restoration through establishing regional chapters, biannual conferences, advising international organizations with policy and legislation, and publications such as peer-reviewed journals. Until 2011, there were 12 geographic chapters globally, including 7 chapters in the

24

continental US alone. The Great Basin contains some of the most endangered ecosystems and restoration factors relatively prominently in land management, and so the need to have representation for the Great Basin in SER was evident. The Great Basin Chapter is focused on the portions of the western states of Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Oregon and California that comprise the Great Basin geographical – ecological province. The Chapter will promote the science of ecological restoration and information exchange among practitioners, researchers and the general public in the Great Basin.
