The Department of Fisheries and Wildlife is a strong supporter of The Wildlife Society. The Wildlife Society was founded in 1937 as an international non-profit organization dedicated to promoting wildlife stewardship through science and education. Many of the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the department are active members of TWS on many levels, including the Oregon Chapter.
The AFS & TWS Student Chapters is a Chapter of The Wildlife Society. Students who join the Student Chapters may choose to be a part of the Oregon Chapter of TWS as a part of their club membership dues.
