Formed by SER student members at universities and academic campuses, the SER Student Association Program allows students studying ecological restoration and related fields to come together to connect, share resources, and mobilize as the next generation of restoration professionals.

The program was established in 2007 and has grown to include seven student associations across the United States including:  Colorado State University, Texas A&M University, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, University of Montana, University of Washington, North Carolina State University and Temple University.  Each association is sponsored by a faculty advisor and engages in a variety of activities each year such as career fairs, volunteer opportunities, and workshops, to name a few.

To date, the Texas Chapter has one student association affiliated with Texas A&M University.  This organization has been very active in reforestation efforts of the Lost Pines Ecosystem after the 2011 Bastrop County fires.  For more information on the Texas A&M University Student Association visit http://ser.tamu.edu, or if you are interested in starting a new student group, contact TXSER’s Chapter Coordinator at info@txser.org.
