This year, ABAC will be hosting the 2019 Wildlife Society Southeastern Student Conclave. This event is a competition between 22 to 24 colleges, all from 14 states across the Southeast.
The event will have various physical and intellectual challenges for contestants: tree identification, skeet shooting, archery, orienteering and a wildlife lab practical.
However, the quiz bowl will likely be the biggest part of the competition.
Members of the Wildlife Society have been preparing for the event since the start of the spring semester. The event itself will be held at the end of Spring Break, starting Thursday, March 21 and ending with the awards on Saturday, March 23. Currently, there are still several volunteer positions open for anyone willing to help.
The sign-up sheet can be found in the Yow Building’s lounge, and for more information, contact the Wildlife Society President, Matthew Cooper at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Yow advisor Dr. William Moore at email@example.com.
