Melanie Colón Posted January 4, 2019 Share Posted January 4, 2019 The Northeast Section of The Wildlife Society, in cooperation with Castleton University and the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife, will be hosting our 11th annual 2-week Wildlife Field Course in Castleton, Vermont, May 19-June 1, 2019. Please visit the course website for details and application materials: http://wildlife.org/ne-section/about/student-field-course/ The course fee is $950 and includes 3 undergraduate or graduate credits through Castleton University and room and board for the 2 weeks. The course is housed at the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department's Edward Kehoe Conservation Camp near Castleton with much field work on the nearby Bird Mountain Wildlife Management Area. The course emphasizes hands-on experience with basic field techniques (small mammal trapping, bird point counts, habitat sampling, radiotelemetry, etc.) and small group work organized around the theme of conducting a biological inventory. We also provide hunter education training and certification in Project Wild. The course is led by practicing wildlife biologists and ecologists who volunteer their time to serve as instructors providing great networking opportunities and career perspectives during evening discussion sessions. We usually have 20+ guest instructors from various state and federal agencies, consulting firms, and universities. The November/December 2017 issue of The Wildlife Professional (www.wildlife.org) has a short article on the course if you have access to it. Several chapters of The Wildlife Society offer full or partial scholarships to eligible students, too. Enrollment is capped at 20 students and we currently have 16 registered and hope to fill up soon. Please do not reply to this email with questions but contact me at: email@example.com. Dr. John E.
