2007 Missouri Quail Academy–Applications Open for Students and Teachers in Missouri

Jef Hodges, Great Plains Regional Director of Quail Unlimited, announced the 2007 Missouri Quail Academy today, open to all Missouri students and teachers interested in quail management practices and natural resource conservation. “This joint effort between Quail Unlimited, the Missouri Department of Conservation and the University of Central Missouri is an exceptional opportunity for advanced conservation participation and exposure to students and teachers alike” states Hodges. “The 5 day academy is provided at no charge to students or teachers and teachers may earn up to 2 hours of college credit for their participation” Hodges emphasized.

Held at the University of Central Missouri, in Warrensburg, MO from June 10th to the 15th, the curriculum includes working along side University and conservation staff to investigate quail management; experience a variety of conservation practices and instruction; and participate in field trips and other outdoor recreation. Leadership topics will be covered so students may further develop skills in communication with their communities, peers, and they will learn to write press releases and present educational programs.

25 high-school students are selected as cadets based on scholastic achievement and an interest in conservation. Applicants must be freshman or sophomores with a GPA of 2.5 or higher, and they must complete a hunter education course before the academy begins.

5 teachers will be selected as academy covey leaders. They will serve as chairpersons and assistants while they also learn the latest in conservation techniques.

Interested students and teachers must complete the Academy Application available on line at http://www.qu.org/MOAcademy/. Applications must be submitted by March 15th, 2007 to MO. Quail Academy, Quail Unlimited, 382 NW Hwy 18, Clinton, MO 64735 or by fax to 660-885-7152.

    You can use rose petals, honeysuckle & calendulas to decorate your plain
    Christmas cake. This suggests banks will be in a position to borrow cash from the central authority at
    low rates and subsequently, they are going to be able to offer low interest private loans.

    Sweet tasty cake, all yours for the taking; just be sure you continue on trying completely
    new methods of cake decorating to help you keep improving your
    cake making.
