Make a Difference Day, the SER Way

How do participants from 56 different countries impact the community hosting the 5th World Conference on Ecological Restoration?  They do what they do best, volunteer to restore habitats in two local, renowned ecological restoration sites.

The knowledgeable and experienced "person-power" provided by conference attendees will make a significant difference to the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Lakeshore Nature Preserve.

A sponsored event, by Weston Solutions, participants will be transported to one of two locations for a day of volunteering and a free lunch.

This legacy project is an excellent example of using the expertise and skills of the conference volunteers to make a difference in the local area.
