Welcome to the Conservation Education and Outreach Working Group

The Conservation Education and Outreach Working Group works to instill and foster a land ethic and an understanding of ecological principles among today’s citizens. It provides a forum for TWS members to cooperate in helping build public support for wildlife management programs. The working group provides for the exchange and advancement of ideas in elementary and secondary curricula, development of innovative outreach programs, infusion of critical learning skills in conservation education, conservation and environmental writing, and teaching techniques. Visit our Facebook group.


CEOWG board virtually meets the second Wednesday of every month from 3:30pm-4:30pm (EST). All working group members are invited to attend board meetings. The agenda, with connection information, is sent to the working group ahead of all board meetings. Please contact Lauren Hildreth ( if you have trouble accessing the board meetings.

The Working Group also holds an annual meeting during The Wildlife Society’s Annual Conference.
