We are a nationally acknowledged student chapter of The Wildlife Society. The Wildlife Society is an international, non-profit organization that connects students, teachers, professionals and naturalists alike to conserve wildlife and their habitats.

Our mission is to represent and serve the professional community of scientists, managers, educators, technicians, planners, and others who work actively to study, manage, and conserve wildlife and habitats worldwide.

As a student chapter we partake in many events throughout the academic year.  The majority of these events are classified as service-learning projects.  We attend the Annual Wildlife Society Conference each year, along with the Northeastern Regional Conclave every Spring.  We typically fundraise via an Outdoor Bash/Game Dinner, selling       t-shirts, calendars, and hoodies.  We do a great deal of work in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, and many other state/national organizations.

Come check out what we are doing!  Activities are always going on and everyone is welcome!! Thursdays, 11:00 AM in Frich Hall Room 300 at California University of Pennsylvania
