Fish and Wildlife TWS Student Chapter Events

The UNBC Fish and Wildlife Student Chapter of the Wildlife Society is for anyone with fish and wildlife interests, not just students in the Wildlife and Fisheries major or the Biology major. It is a way to get to know people with similar interests.  Our Student Chapter usually conducts one event per month during the academic year, including featured speakers, outdoor activities, and other Chapter functions.  The UNBC TWS Trip Policy, approved by the Executive on 2 March 2009, applies to all Student Chapter sponsored trips.

Mugaha bird banding station near Mackenzie to band migratory songbirds (Sept 16-17)

This year at the banding station, the 12 student chapter members that travelled to Mugaha Marsh had the experience of seeing a variety of song birds, 2 Saw-whet Owls, and the first Boreal Owl of the season. Students had the option to go exploring before the owl banding began, and they were able to see many types of waterfowl, raptors, and a few fur-bearers on the many trails around the banding station. The night merited beautiful northern lights, a whole lot of meteors, and the calls of a small pack of coyotes. An all-around wonderful weekend with some wonderful people!
