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

Don’t miss out on 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 will also be for sale at this display. We hope to see you there!
