Wildlife & Fisheries Club
The ESU Wildlife & Fisheries club is open to any students interested in the outdoors through wildlife and/or fisheries related activities. We operate under both a student chapter of The Wildlife Society and student subunit of the American Fisheries Society. Our goal as a club, is to provide members with skills and experiences to enable them to become the next generation of wildlife and fisheries professionals.
We participate in various volunteer activities including prescribed burning, seed collecting, and surveying through entities such as the Kansas Department of Wildlife & Parks and The Nature Conservancy. We engage members in professional development opportunities including certifications, field experience, and networking opportunities.
Meetings are held monthly, and weekly emails are sent with professional development activities such as volunteer opportunities/job announcements.
Contact email@example.com to be added to our email list! Or stop by to check our club poster board located across from the Richard H. Schmidt Museum of Natural History on the lower level in Science Hall.
Our current officers are as follows:
President: Audrey Van Zelfden
Vice President: Meagan Fernandez
Treasurer: Lizzy Murdock
Secretary: Grace Higgins
Advisors: Dr. William Jensen, Dr. Rachel Bowes
