Student Conclaves

TWS Student Chapters host four regional Student Conclaves each year that provide college students with valuable hands-on training in wildlife management and conservation, and networking opportunities with wildlife professionals.

Some activities include field trips, workshops (i.e., telemetry, trapping, chemical immobilization, mist-netting), field competitions, local tours, game-calling competitions, quiz bowls, banquets, photography contests, and guest speakers.

TWS is proudly supporting each Student Conclave with a $1000 grant.
