Welcome to The Fisheries and Wildlife Club Website!

We are a peer-elected, nonprofit student group dedicated to the professional development of those interested in the Fisheries and Wildlife field. We focus on skill building, networking with professionals, practical application of field techniques, public outreach, and expanding on current knowledge both professionally and with the public. Throughout the academic year, we hold biweekly meetings on campus and regularly organize off-campus field trips, including the annual Oregon AFS and TWS Chapter meetings. Take a look around our website and visit our About and Events page to get involved, learn more about the FW Club, and attend our next meeting.

Most Recent Trip: Two Day OHRC Fisheries Workshop – May 6 & 7th

The Fisheries and Wildlife Club provided a hands on, skills-oriented workshop at the Oregon Hatchery Research Center near Alsea, OR. This would not have been possible without the generous time and resources provided by Joseph O’Neil (OHRC Facility Manager) and Karen Hans (ODFW STEP Biologist). This was an excellent opportunity for students to visit one of ODFW’s state-of-the-art research facilities in a beautiful location and get valuable experience to prepare for summer internships!

Skills offered during trip:

  • Electroshock Fishing
  • Pit-Tagging
  • Knot Tying
  • Tig Welding
