Student Conclaves

TWS student chapters host five regional student conclaves each year that provide college students with valuable hands-on training in wildlife management and conservation, and networking opportunities with wildlife professionals. Some activities include field trips, workshops (i.e., telemetry, trapping, chemical immobilization, mist-netting), field competitions, local tours, game-calling competitions, quiz bowls, banquets, photography contests, and guest speakers. 


TWS is proudly supporting each student conclave with a $1,000 grant.
