Student Chapter of The Wildlife Society
The students at Paul Smith's College formed a student chapter of the Wildlife Society in June 2007. Since then, they have been active, attending national meetings in Tucson, AZ and Miami, FL. They also attended NY state meetings and participated in the Northeast Conclaves. They have assisted the NY DEC with a deer study and VT Fish and Game with moose check stations.
