Quail Forever (QF) (Pheasants Forever’s quail division) and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will dedicate a 70-acre addition to Richard J. Dorer Memorial Hardwood State Forest. This will mark the first-ever land acquisition project by Quail Forever in Minnesota since the organization established in 2005.
Utilizing a Conservation Partner Legacy grant from Minnesota’s Outdoor Heritage Fund, Quail Forever and contributing partners have permanently protected a 70-acre addition on the east side of, and directly adjacent to, the Richard J. Dorer Memorial Hardwood State Forest. Creating wildlife habitat and permanently protecting Winnebago Creek, one of several southeast Minnesota trout streams in the area, the new addition will provide additional hunting and recreational opportunities to Minnesota residents.
