The Wildlife Society Student Chapter

The spring break trip was known as "Lagniappe 5". . . a little something extra and the fifth time a group from Penn State's College of Ag Sciences traveled to Louisiana.

The Penn State Student Chapter of The Wildlife Society is accomplishing many “firsts” this academic year.

The chapter hosted its first international speaker—Dr. Mireya Mayor—world-famous explorer and wildlife expert–in collaboration with the Pre-Vet Club on September 8. 

On October 10, the chapter hosted its first “Kids Go Wild” event in and around the Forest Resources Building to share their love of the outdoors with local children while educating them about wildlife and forestry.

"Kids Go Wild"

Chapter members were instrumental is setting up a spring-break trip to Louisiana to study the effects of the oil spill on local environments.  Drs. Jackie Grant and Gary San Julian and 14 students made the trip.

The chapter also created an alumni group to keep track of graduated members and keep them informed about current activities.  Alumni interested in joining this group should contact the chapter’s alumni relations coordinator Amanda Bowe at bowe.amanda@gmail or join the Facebook group (The Wildlife Society at Penn State – Alumni Group).
