The Natural Areas Association (NAA) will hold its annual conference October 23-25 in Bloomington, Indiana and the Midwest Great Lakes Chapter of SER (the Society for Ecological Restoration) will be there. Come join us.

On Tuesday October 23, the opening day of the conference, the MWGL chapter hosted an informal lunch for chapter members, and prospective members. The lunch was from 12 noon to 1:30 in the Tudor Room of the Indiana Memorial Union. Hosted by Mary Damm, SER MWGL Board member from Indiana, the gathering attracted a small, but lively group of SER MWGL members. The event was an opportunity to meet other SER members and to learn more about the chapter’s mission and activities.
