Meetings and Trainings

The WCTWS hosts two annual events open to members and non-members.

The winter meeting, usually held the first week of March, includes presentations and posters by professionals and students. The event also includes an evening social and presentation of Chapter awards. The winter meeting location alternates between north/central Wisconsin and the Madison area.

The Chapter also hosts a 1-2 day technical training in Sept/Oct each year which allows attendees to gain practical experience on the selected topic. Past topics have included: wildlife damage management, how to inventory and monitor wildlife, wildlife diseases, and working with the media & conflict resolution, and conservation decision making and planning.
