Organized in 1991, SERCAL was the first state chapter of the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER), an international nonprofit membership organization. In March 2000 SERCAL elected to separate from SER and was reorganized as The California Society for Ecological Restoration, an independent nonprofit, public benefit corporation. In July 2000 the Corporation was granted California non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt status, followed by federal (IRS) tax exempt status in May, 2001. * SERCAL has no organizational or financial affiliation with SER, International *
Over the years, SERCAL has been strongly dedicated to the following objectives:
SERCAL is divided into 9 geographically based regions throughout the state to facilitate convenient interaction between members. Elected Directors for each region are available to assist in coordinating educational, restoration and social activities within the region, taking into consideration the desires, attributes and interest of the membership. SERCAL has organized ecosystem-oriented guilds which provide educational and restoration opportunities in their individual subject areas. Participation in guild activities is open to any interested party. Currently active are the Riparian Guild, Coastal Sage Scrub Guild and Coastal Dunes Guild.
