The Leopold Wildlife Club is the student Chapter of The Wildlife Society and North Carolina State University. We are dedicated to providing opportunities for professional development, networking, extracurricular training, and social events for students interested in careers in the wildlife field.
We meet every 2nd and 4th Monday in Jordan 2, Room 1216 at 6:30pm. We enjoy pizza and drinks at every meeting while we listen to speakers talk about various jobs, projects, and issues related to wildlife. We are part of several community service and outreach events. Each year we are part of the Southeastern Wildlife Conclave Competitions. In 2015 the Leopold Wildlife Club placed 3rd in the Team Field Competition!
