Section Councils

NatureServes recognizes that effective biodiversity conservation responds to the unique social, political, and economic conditions in any given section of the world. As such, we seek to foster and accommodate network participation through regional Sections. Members in the Canadian and U.S. Sections support the Network by representing regional interests pursuit and ensuring their reflection in our shared goals, objectives, and plans.

US Section Council

The US Section Council is elected to represent the needs and interests of NatureServe network members from the United States.

The U.S. Section Council helps the network achieve its shared mission by:

  • Representing the network members in strategic, annual, and operational planning
  • Coordinating communications and maintaining connections between network members and NatureServe staff
  • Seeking and contributing to fundraising and business development
  • Nominating a representative to serve on the NatureServe Board of Directors
