SEEDS Chapters Program

SEEDS at Canyonlands National Park.

SEEDS chapters, as autonomous undergraduate student clubs, provide key focal points for local and regional environmental leadership advancement, community engagement, and career development activities. Since 1996, SEEDS has built a wide network of campus chapters across the country, and today, we are proud that more than 100 campus groups have affiliated with the program.


Congratulations to UPR-Bayamon L.I.F.E. SEEDS Chapter for winning the 2022 SEEDS National BioBlitz!

SEEDS Chapters and their members made almost 5,000 observations of over 1,000 species throughout the week of April 20-27 through the iNaturalist app. We’re happy to announce that the Leading Initiative for Future Ecologists (L.I.F.E.) SEEDS Chapter of the University of Puerto Rico at Bayamon is the winner of this year’s competition with a total of 1,601 observations – (click here to check out their project in iNaturalist). We would like to thank all the SEEDS Chapters that participated in the 2022 SEEDS National BioBlitz and we hope you had fun!

ESA is grateful to Ms. Vicki Moore for her major gift to re-energize our SEEDS Chapter Program in honor of her daughter, Kendra Chan. Kendra Chan died in a tragic SCUBA boat fire of the coast of Santa Barbara, CA in 2019 at age 26.
