Conference registration is now open!

Pre-registration for The Wildlife Society’s 25th Annual Conference is now open! With a great destination, new and beautiful venues, and nearly 1,000 educational and training opportunities, we’re hitting the quarter-century mark with a bang. Member registration rates are already $200 less than nonmember rates, but register by June 30 to save an additional $50 and get your first choice of field trips, workshops, discounted hotel rooms and more!

The conference, set to take place Oct. 7-11 in Cleveland, Ohio, will mark its 25th anniversary and a major milestone for TWS. With an exciting new program structure, the event is poised to have attendees reveling in the achievements of not only the wildlife profession, but of the collective natural resources community. Don’t miss out on your chance to experience TWS live!

In a significant change, the day pattern of this year’s conference has shifted. The event, which has run it’s core program Sunday-Wednesday in the past, will now run Monday-Thursday, with workshops on Sunday. Also noteworthy is our Opening Night Networking Event at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the return of the Student Professional Networking Event. We’ve also added designated poster sessions each afternoon and moved our daily plenary and keynote sessions to late morning, immediately preceding the lunch break. Find the preliminary Schedule At-a-Glance here.

Discounted hotel rooms are limited, and will sell out well in advance of the conference, so we encourage attendees to book now! Workshop and field trip spots will also fill up quickly and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Click here to register, or visit for more information.
