Hello, and welcome to The Cal U Student Chapter of The Wildlife Society's OrgSync page! Interested in seeing what we are all about? Come to a meeting! We meet every Thursday during the semester in Frich Biology Building, room 300 at 11:00am. Everyone and anyone is welcome!
The Wildlife Society is an international, non-profit organization that connects students, teachers, & professionals to conserve wildlife and their habitats and aims to advance the fields of biology. Here at Cal U, we're proud to be a nationally acknowledged student chapter of this amazing organization.
Our mission as a student chapter is to represent & serve the professional scientific community that works to study, manage, and conserve wildlife & habitats worldwide & to provide our members with the enriching & valuable experiences & knowledge necessary for them to succeed in our field.
We attend the Annual Wildlife Society National Conference each fall and the Northeastern Regional Conclave each spring. We are also closely associated with several professional organizations, such as the PA Game Commission, through which a lot of our events for our members are possible. Service is a large part of our club; we participate in several service activities throughout the academic year. Additionally, our members enjoy recreational group activities such as hiking and fishing. We raise funds to participate in all of these wonderful opportunities mainly through our annual Outdoor Bash/Game Dinner, but also through t-shirt/hoodie sales & bake sales.
No matter your major, you will find something to love about TWS!
"There are some who can live without wild things... and some who cannot."
The Cal U Student Chapter of The Wildlife Society is a highly active, social, and involved club, as well as a nationally recognized chapter of The Wildlife Society. We participate in a wide range of service activities, seminars, field workshops, and more that focus on the various aspects of wildlife biology. We focus heavily on providing students with opportunities to participate in hands-on field experiences which encourages resume building, as we believe this is the best way to learn and succeed in this field.
