Learning about our natural world never ends. Wildlife fascinate professionals and non-professionals alike. For wildlife professionals, conferences, webinars, and field events are held periodically which can qualify for continuing education credit through The Wildlife Society. The Wildlife Society offers levels of certification and continuing education credit to those professionals who have at least a bachelor degree in a wildlife-related field.

Wildlife professionals wishing to receive continuing education credit can email the The Wildlife Society in advance to determine the number of credits awarded. Be sure to attach a program or other documentation to your email request.

In 2021, the Arkansas Chapter of The Wildlife Society held a virtual conference for continuing education credit by those attending the live event. Professional and student presentations can be found on our website

The Arkansas Forest Resources Center and Cooperative Extension Service, along with partners such as the private lands alliance, periodically hold conferences, webinars, and field events qualifying for continuing education credit. For more information, contact Dr. Becky McPeake,
