We're going places… please join us!
The California Society for Ecological Restoration (SERCAL) relies exclusively on the momentum from its membership and volunteer board to advance the science, practice, and art of ecological restoration in California's many and varied ecosystems. Our annual conference — held each May in natural destinations across the state — is a great resource for technical education, professional networking, and keeping up to date with the latest. Fieldtrips and workshops are offered on a regular basis. Members receive discount to all these events; they also receive our quarterly newsletter, Ecesis, and the opportunity to get more involved in the strong volunteer community of board and guild chair service.
SERCAL memberships are calendar-year based, expiring on December 31 each year. Members receive their renewal notice in October as well as a separate ballot for board elections. There are discounted rates for joint memberships in SERCAL and the California Native Grassland Association (www.CNGA.org), for college students, and nonprofit organizations, as well as special memberships for those who wish to increase their financial support of the organization.
When you are done filling out the application, press the JOIN! button at the bottom of the form. Within one business day you will receive an invoice from SERCAL through Squareup for the membership amount you have chosen. If you have any questions/concerns regarding this process, please contact the Administrative Director, Julie St John. Or if you wish to renew via mail and a check, please download the application and send it to the SERCAL Administrative Office, 515 N Desert Stravenue, Tucson AZ 85711.
Additionally, SERCAL members have the opportunity to receive a discounted rate to Ecological Restoration, a journal published for restoration practitioners by the University of Wisconsin Press. Follow this link to find out more.
