SERNbc’s membership, stakeholders, and other project proponents drive our ecosystem restoration programming. Project ideas are evaluated and prioritized by SERNbc staff and Board of Directors. The restoration objectives for new restoration project must align with SERNbc’s mission and the goals in SERNbc’s strategic plan.
Vulnerable and degraded ecosystems that have high value and functional importance and are not actively managed through existing programming are a high priority for ecosystem restoration. Examples ecosystems include natural grasslands, range-lands, open Douglas-fir forests, white-bark pine stands, wetlands, and wildlife habitat.
These example ecosystems do not preclude including other ecosystem types as new project ideas and new restoration priorities are brought to SERNbc. Ecosystem restoration projects are implemented on a priority basis based on a number of indicators including an ecosystem’s functional importance, the level of vulnerability, available funding, and a number of other factors.
The locations of ecosystem restoration projects that SERNbc has initiated or completed are shown on the map. Search all current and past projects by project name below, or use the search box for keywords.
