Education - Wild Quail Management Seminar

Quail

The annual wild quail management seminar is designed to improve landowner's quail habitat management skills. Information is presented so that anyone with an interest can implement these practices on their property, regardless of size.

Field demonstrations and classroom instruction will focus on habitat practices including firebreak establishment, prescribed burning, forest management, brush control, discing for natural foods and supplemental food patch plantings. Presentations will be given on wild quail natural history, biology, diseases and parasites, predation and other factors that may be contributing to the population decline. An update on current research will also be presented. Speakers will include wildlife and forestry professionals from state and federal agencies.
