Welcome to the San Joaquin Valley Chapter
We have a December 2019 newsletter available here.
Complete Volumes 1-6 of the Western Section’s new journal, Western Wildlife, are now available as a single publication: click here to access.
Jeff Davis and others have researched the history of the San Joaquin Valley Chapter of The Wildlife Society. Jeff consolidated his findings into a summary table, available here, dating back to 1966.
It’s time to renew your membership! Perhaps you renew through the national TWS or with the Western Section. If not, you may use the Membership Form and send it to us with the ridiculously small $5 annual fee.
We are tentatively planning on a virtual Communities Conference meeting sometime in early 2021. The board is currently discussing options. Thank you for your patience!
SJV Wildlife Discussion Forum
The purpose of SJV Wildlife is to promote sound stewardship of wildlife, plants, and habitats in the San Joaquin Valley by facilitating communication among scientists, managers, consultants, educators, regulators, technicians, planners, and others. Postings should relate to wildlife, plants, or habitats within the San Joaquin Valley or surrounding foothills and mountains, an area encompassing nine counties: Stanislaus, Merced, Mariposa, Madera, Fresno, San Benito, Kings, Tulare, and Kern.
Suggested topics for postings and discussion include the following:
• Activities, workshops, presentations, conferences, and events;
• Grant opportunities;
• Job announcements, including research assistantships and postdocs;
• Research updates;
• Published papers;
• Survey techniques and protocols;
• Data collection and management;
• Data analysis methods;
• Status, distribution, and seasonal occurrence;
• Natural history observations;
• Habitat preservation and management;
• Species and habitat maintenance, enhancement, and restoration;
• Recovery plans and goals;
• Field equipment;
• Management effectiveness; and
• Proposed or enacted projects, actions, or policies that could affect species or habitats.
