Are you a teacher currently conducting research related to wildlife and/or wildlife habitats with high school students? Are you a high school student involved in wildlife-related research? Would you be interested in presenting your research to an audience of fellow student researchers, biologists, and wildlife management agencies?

The Student Wildlife Research Symposium is a showcase for high school students interested in and researching wildlife. Students are given the opportunity to show what they have done to peers and professionals as well as learn from others at the symposium. The symposium opens up many students minds for careers in conservation.

This years symposium will be held on April 28th at Maumee Bay State Park Lodge. Proposals for the symposium opened on September 1st. If you are interested in being a part of this great learning experience or are a teacher looking to get their students involved, check out the Division of Wildlife’s website or view the flyer.¬†Proposal forms are included in the flyer.

About Sarah Schott

I have enjoyed hunting, fishing, and the outdoors my entire life. My enjoyment of writing, reading, and teaching others leads me to want to share my passions of the environment. I have also found conservation to be very important and I am well aware of how important conservation choices are! Through my work with the District, I like to deliver information that is helpful, inspiring, and challenging for our readers to make even better conservation choices of all our natural resources!
