WCW Happenings​ 

Professionals in wildlife biology and fisheries from the Midwest came to the College of Natural Resources at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in February and March 2018 to share their stories and knowledge with the public! These hour-long talks were free and open to everyone. We would like to thank all the speakers for making this event possible, and we hope to hear more about their adventures in the future!

The Wisconsin Center for Wildlife hosted a kiosk display at the Midwest Fish and Wildlife Conference in Milwaukee, WI, January 29-31!

Attendees had a great opportunity to interact with our kiosks and to discover a new, innovative technology that can assist wildlife educators, researchers, and organizations in their engagement with the public. The National Wildlife Control Training Program Manual and a wildlife damage management guide were also for sale at this display. We would like to thank everyone who helped staff the display, and we hope to see everyone again next year!
