CSCC Hosts Southeastern Wildlife Conclave

  • Wednesday, March 22, 2023

Cleveland State Community College Student Chapter of The Wildlife Society hosted the Southeastern Wildlife Conclave on the Cleveland State campus March 16-18. Over 300 students from 18 colleges and universities across the southeast traveled to Cleveland for the conclave.

Officials said, "The conclave provided college students with valuable hands-on training in wildlife management and conservation. Activities included field trips, field competitions, game-calling competitions, quiz bowl, art and photography contests, guest speakers and many opportunities for professional development. The Southeastern Wildlife Conclave promotes networking and cooperation among students, faculty and wildlife professionals."

This year, the conclave featured a concert by rising country music star, Hayden Coffman. Coffman donated tickets to the conclave participants; proceeds from the concert offset conclave expenses for the Cleveland State Student Chapter of the TWS.

Robert Brewer, CSCC associate professor of natural science and director of the Greg A. Vital Center for Natural Resources and Conservation, said, "This was the biggest thing that's ever hit this campus. I owe everything to the volunteers - the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, Cleveland State employees and USDA folks. Everybody really stepped up."
