Every year there is a national conference held either in the western US, central states, or on the eastern seaboard (it rotates yearly). Just this past October, select members travelled to Oregon for the conference. In 2013 the conference is being held in Milwuakee, Wisconsin! I love WI, I’ve been there once…and had a great time.
I’m interested in attending this conference, and just submitted my application to our chapter faculty advisor, Kevin Berner. There were several pages of short answer-like questions asking about why I think I’d be a good representative of SUNY Cobleskill, what species I’d like to see in WI, if I own my own binoculars, and what courses I’ve taken related to wildlife and plant identification. I’m crossing my fingers that I get accepted!
To help offset the cost of the trip, we’re participating in a raffle! The New York State Wildlife Society Chapter is actually the “parent” of this fundraiser, but as a student chapter within the state, we get to participate.
-Tickets are $5.00 each or 5 tickets for $20.00
-The drawing will be held April 7th-9th at the annual NYS Chapter Meeting…the winner DOES NOT need to be present to win.
So this is a shameless cast out there- if you’d like to buy a raffle ticket and help to fund my WI trip, then please leave me a comment! If I should not be chosen to go, the money will end up in our chapter’s account and will be used by students.
Thanks for letting me plug our club’s fundraiser!
