Lincoln Trail and Northern Kentucky Quail Forever chapters are dedicated to habitat improvement
Kentucky is home to two new Quail Forever (QF) chapters. Residents from Hardin County formed the Lincoln Trail Chapter of Quail Forever, while residents from Boon, Kenton, Campbell, and Grant counties formed the Northern Kentucky Chapter of Quail Forever. Both groups are dedicated to habitat improvement that benefits upland birds and other local wildlife.
Quail Forever and Pheasant Forever (PF) empower local chapters with the responsibility to determine how 100 percent of their locally raised conservation funds will be spent. This local control allows members to see the fruits of their chapter efforts in their own communities while belonging to a national organization with a voice on federal conservation policy in Washington, D.C.
“These new Quail Forever chapters will be vital to both the preservation and increased population of bobwhite quail in Kentucky,” said Brian Nentrup, Quail Forever’s Kentucky regional representative. “Dedicated folks from the community have organized to form each of these groups, and it is my pleasure to serve them as a representative in order to maximize our programming for Quail Forever in this region.”
Quail Forever, the leader in quail conservation efforts, was formed on August 10, 2005 by Pheasants Forever to address the loss of quail habitat and the subsequent quail population decline across the U.S. quail range. Quail Forever utilizes the same model that has allowed Pheasants Forever’s 600 chapters and 125,000 members to accomplish over 460,000 habitat projects across the country since its formation in 1982.
