SE Kansas Quail Unlimited Event to Feature National Habitat Director

The SE Kansas Quail Unlimited Chapter will be hosting a cookout/membership drive which promises to educate, inform, challenge and even satisfy the hunger of quail enthusiasts. The program is slated for Saturday, February 17, 2007 at 6:00 pm and will be held at the Producers Co-op in Girard.

The multifaceted event will feature guest speaker Roger Wells, Quail Unlimited National Habitat Director. Wells will be presenting a program entitled “Quail on a Kansas Farm”. Dennis Clutter, Crawford County Conservation District Buffer Coordinator, will also be addressing the group and will be providing answers to landowners questions regarding the popular Farm Bill program known as Practice CP33 (Habitat Buffers for Upland Birds).

“The chapter is really gaining some momentum. This event will be insightful and should lure sincerely interested individuals to their local quail conservation mission,” said Bob Peterson, Quail Unlimited Central Plains Regional Director. “It’s exciting to be a part of a national and local quail recovery effort. The effects of our mission are far-reaching…it’s bigger than you and me; it’s bigger than all of us,” Peterson added.

The event will offer other incentives for folks to attend such as a gun raffle and a commemorative mirror, to be auctioned during the event. The funds raised will support the local chapter’s conservation projects. Additionally, the SE Kansas Quail Unlimited Chapter members will be treating attendants to a cookout, which includes; hamburgers, hotdogs and all the fixing’s.

There are no fees being charged to attend this event which is open to landowners, conservation-minded individuals and the media. Attendants are encouraged to show their support by joining the local Quail Unlimited chapter.
