TWS Student Conclaves

TWS proudly supports up to eight regional student conclaves hosted by student chapters each year with a $1,000 grant for each conclave. The event provides 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.
