Welcome to the Idaho Chapter of The Wildlife Society

ICTWS Archives now hosted by U of I Library Special Collections

A few years ago, the board of the Idaho Chapter of the Wildlife Society provided the University of Idaho Library Special Collections with the hardcopies of the chapter’s correspondence, newsletters, and meeting information from 1964-2016. These materials have now all been digitized and are now publicly accessible! We are glad to have this project officially completed and excited to share the finished product with our members. We greatly appreciate the efforts of the University of Idaho Library Special Collections and especially the previous ICTWS officers that made this possible!

NEW! ICTWS Mentorship Program

The Idaho Chapter of The Wildlife Society is pleased to announce its brand new Mentorship Program! This initiative has been jointly developed by the ICTWS Membership and Student Affairs Committees over the past year. To kick it off, we are looking for interested wildlife professionals to sign-up. Responses will be collected and curated by the Mentorship Program Coordinator Sandy Amdor (Sandy.Amdor@idfg.idaho.gov) and the ICTWS Secretary Robert Ritson (idahochaptertws@gmail.com). If we have enough interested mentors, we will open it up to prospective student mentees at the Joint Annual Meeting in March. Students will contact the Mentorship Program Coordinator or ICTWS Secretary who will then share the prospective mentor survey responses. It will then be up to the prospective mentees to identify a mentor who meets their interests and contact them directly. The Mentorship Program Guidelines can be found here.
