Abstract

SER EDITORIAL ast week I met Mabel, a tireless promoter of conservation and habitat restoration near Houston, Texas. At eighty-nine years of age she moves slowly, but her enthusiasm is undiminished. Cataracts have dimmed her eyesight, but her vision remains clear and determined. Mabel described magical places and remarkable people that forever changed her life. But mostly she described the power of knowledge, enthusiasm, friendships, and collaborations to achieve the goals of conservation and restoration. The collective capabilities and influence of like-minded individuals and organizations can have remarkable and lasting impacts. Although I had planned to share my vision with Mabel, I came away inspired by hers. In my first editorial as Chair of the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER), I'll briefly describe a few ways SER is spreading knowledge and fostering the friendships and collaborations that promote restoration. The Society for Ecological Restoration seeks "to promote ecological restoration as a means of sustaining the diversity of life on Earth and reestablishing an ecologically healthy relationship between nature and culture." An enthusiastic and knowledgeable membership is our greatest strength, and most of our successes involved collaborations with like-minded organizations. We continue to seek new collaborations--both formal and informal--in
