SERN BC - Society for Ecosystem Restoration in Northern BC

SERNbc is a group of individuals and agencies who collaborate to restore vulnerable and degraded ecosystems in northern British Columbia. Members include representatives from academia, government agencies, industry, First Nations, NGO’s, non-profit and community-based organizations, local and regional experts, and other stakeholder. There is no cost to become a member of SERNbc.

SERNbc programs are guided by a Strategic Plan and SERNbc has completed ecosystem restoration scoping exercises for the Omineca, Peace, and now the Skeena Forest Regions which help to prioritize restoration activities in northern BC.
