North Fork Quail Forever Chapter Meets in Sayre

North Fork Quail Forever Chapter Meets in Sayre

Upland conservationists and hunters in four southwest Oklahoma counties have formed the newest Quail Forever chapter in the state. Known as the North Fork Quail Forever chapter, the group, which covers Beckham, Greer, Harmon and Roger Mills counties, initiated to lead wildlife habitat conservation projects that benefit bobwhite and scaled quail.

The North Fork Quail Forever chapter has set out to do quail upland habitat projects on public and private lands. The popular, 19,000-acre Sandy Sanders Wildlife Management Area in Greer and Beckham counties is one local public tract that will benefit from the chapter’s presence and future habitat projects, work that will be appreciated by bobwhites and upland hunters alike.

“There is a tremendous amount of interest in conserving quail in these communities and across Oklahoma,” says Laura McIver, Quail Forever’s regional representative in the state. “People are recognizing the biggest issue for quail is the quantity and quality of upland habitat. And that’s where Quail Forever comes in.”

Quail Forever is dedicated to the conservation of quail, pheasants and other wildlife through habitat improvements, public awareness, education and land management policies and programs. Quail Forever chapters promote local, state, and federal conservation programs which help landowners protect environmentally sensitive acres for quail and other wildlife. Quail Forever also employs a unique model of empowering local chapters with 100 percent control of the chapters' locally-raised funds to complete habitat and youth education projects in the chapters' own communities.
