Quail Restoration Workshop Scheduled At Central Arkansas Nature Center

LITTLE ROCK – The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, United States Department of Agriculture and Quail Forever will host a special workshop to help landowners bring back northern bobwhite in central Arkansas. The workshop will be held at the Witt Stephens Jr. Central Arkansas Nature Center from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 18.

Clint Johnson, AGFC private lands biologist in Mayflower, says the meeting will focus not only on quail habitat needs and recent work from the AGFC and its partners to help bring quail numbers rebound, but also on ways private landowners can join the effort and improve the value of their land to wildlife without heavy cost.

“More than 85 percent of Arkansas is privately owned, so partnerships with landowners are essential to help wildlife management efforts,” Johnson said. “And we have special biologists and staff dedicated to making those partnerships successful.”    MORE
