Southeast Kansas Quail Unlimited Chapter Looks Ahead

Girard, KS (December 28, 2006)—The newly formed Southeast Kansas (SEK) Quail Unlimited Chapter will be holding a meeting on Thursday, January 18, 2007, at 7:00 pm at the Producers Co-op in Girard, KS. The meeting is open to conservation-minded individuals interested in taking an active role in securing the future of the northern bobwhite quail and other upland game birds in the Crawford County Kansas area.

“We will be gathering to discuss our various chapter activities for 2007, including the planning of a cookout in late February, a dog trial in March and prospective habitat projects. Our annual fundraiser event will more than likely be held in the fall,” said Rob Yarborough, chapter chairman.

Through its association with the Southeast Quail Study Group and the Northern Bobwhite Conservation Initiative (which was integral in the formation of the CRP Practice CP33), Quail Unlimited has made great strides in recovering lost habitat for bobwhite quail across their natural range of 22 states.

“Recent monitoring and surveying of the Practice CP33 in Oklahoma has shown significantly more quail, pheasants, rabbits and even deer in fields with CP33 buffers when compared to fields without the buffers. Kansas has enrolled 27,500 acres of the practice CP33 Habitat Buffers for Upland Birds,” commented Bob Peterson, Quail Unlimited Central Plains Regional Director.
