Meeting Minutes (1/27/15)

This meeting was primarily a re-introduction to ESF's Wildlife Society but also to inform all of you about the future events TWS will be involved in and coordinating. To summarize:

We have two trips planned so far. One to Montezuma Wildlife Refuge to be involved with the raptor surveys next Wednesday (2/3) and the other to The Wild Center for a behind-the-scenes tour on a Saturday next month (2/20). Also, feel free to register for WIN's annual program which will take place on the 30th of April. More details can be found on the Upcoming Happenings page.We anticipate holding a radio telemetry workshop, hosting a Trapper Education certification course, and trips to the Page Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.

Save the Dates:
  1. Northeastern Student Conclave will take place at Juniata College, PA on April 1st-3rd (Friday-Sunday)
    Good opportunity to connect with other students in our field.
  2. Northeast Fish and Wildlife Conference at Annapolis, MD on April 3rd-5th (Sunday-Tuesday)
    Register by 2/15 to get a discounted price for this great opportunity to connect with employers.
  3. NYS Chapter of the Wildlife Society Annual Meeting on April 11-15 (Monday-Friday)
    Good meeting to attend to stay up to date on the regional conservation issues but we will most likely only plant attend one day of the week.
  4. Beast Feast on April 22nd (Friday) at 5-8:30An awesome event we host annually with game meat made by faculty, students and supporting organizations. We'll be raffling off cool and interesting items, holding a mock quiz bowl and otherwise, having performances from local groups.
Available Positions: Let us know if you're interested in any one of these positions.
  1. Quiz Bowl Participants:
    Quiz Bowl is a healthy show of student chapter rivalry in which the greatest minds battle it out in a show of wildlife knowledge. Alli and Kim have the avian questions covered but we need people who have a great understanding of fish, mammals and herps. I'm talking scientific names. Requirements include enrollment or past enrollment in the upper Wildlife Science classes (EFB 390 or EFB 481) and attendance to both the Student Conclave and Northeast Fish and Wildlife Conference. Contact Ali if you're interested at
  2. ESF TWS Vice President:
    Join the team and help organize our meetings and events for this great club. To state the obvious, it will look great on your resume.
  3. ESF TWS Executive Officer:
    Be one of the most supportive members of the TWS team. Executive officers are depended upon for completing tasks that contribute to the overall functioning of TWS. Help us plan out our events and see it through. Of course there's also the obvious reason.  
A Quick Reminder - Bird Club is a friend of ours so we'd like to inform you that they have meetings every other Thursday at 4 p.m. Next meeting is Thursday, February 4th.

Hope to see you at our next meeting!
