Our Student Chapter

The University of Montana Student Chapter of The Wildlife Society (TWS) strives to be an active club providing many great opportunities to our members, while having fun along the way. At our meetings, students get a chance to connect with current wildlife professionals and learn about their research. We also provide several opportunities throughout the year where students can practice skills they will use in the field and gain valuable experience for their resume. Students can also use TWS as an opportunity to get involved in the surrounding community through our education outreach program. In addition, participating in the club is a great way to gain leadership skills and meet new people in a positive social atmosphere.

Our goal is to encourage participation in activities and create an environment where all are welcome to share ideas and experiences. Through involvement in the club, students will get the skills and experience they need for jobs and, most importantly, they will make many friends along the way.
