The student chapter of The Wildlife Society was
established to give students in the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources
an opportunity to expand their knowledge of the discipline. The local student
chapter is affiliated with the national organization based in Washington, D.C.,
and sponsors projects, speakers and field trips. Throughout the year,
professors, graduate students, and guest speakers give presentations on diverse
wildlife issues. Other chapter activities include social gatherings, films,
fund-raisers, and field trips.
One of the
chapter's annual projects is the cleaning and repair of the mounted animals
displayed throughout the college . The chapter has also helped the Idaho
Department of Fish and Game with springtime surveys of goose nests on the Clearwater River and hatchling counts at Turnbull
Resevoir. Students provide litter control on a stretch of highway which they
have adopted. Some members represent the University of Idaho
chapter at the annual Western Students' Wildlife Conclave. There they meet
students with similar interests, attend talks and lectures, and compete in the
Wildlife Quiz Bowl.
