Quail Forever adds Carmi chapter

May 14, 2010 at 09:12 PM

CARMI – White County in Illinois is home to a new Quail Forever chapter. Bobwhite quail hunters and conservationists in the southern Illinois county formed the local conservation group to make a difference for quail habitat while creating outdoor opportunities for area youth.

As a Quail Forever chapter, the White County Quail Forever group will utilize Quail Forever’s local approach to wildlife habitat conservation. Unlike other national conservation organizations, Quail Forever gives local Quail Forever chapters the ability to decide how 100 percent of their fundraised dollars are spent. This local control provides chapters and members the ability to make things happen for wildlife in their communities, while belonging to a national organization that gives wildlife and conservation a voice in Washington, D.C.

Helping lead White County Quail Forever’s charge is Brady Wooten, a Farm Bill Biologist for Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever who covers White, Wayne and Edwards Counties in southern Illinois. As a Farm Bill Biologist for “The Habitat Organization,” Wooten works to educate farmers and landowners – through one-on-one consulting - about the benefits of conservation programs (such as the Conservation Reserve Program and Environmental Quality Incentives Program), as well as assisting farmers and landowners through program implementation.

“Our chapter would like to emphasize our goal of restoring and enhancing habitat around the area,” said Wooten, “Those who are interested in implementing wildlife habitat projects on their properties should contact our chapter. In addition, we will also be concentrating on youth opportunities so the younger generation can be an active part of our chapter, this is an important step in continuing great outdoor traditions.”

Chapter leaders include Mitch Gross, chapter president, from Carmi; and Brady Wooten, chapter treasurer, also from Carmi.

The White County chapter will be holding its next meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 20 at the University of Illinois Extension Office in Carmi, Illinois.

The White County Chapter will be holding a banquet in the fall/winter of 2010, details TBA.

For more information about habitat projects or to become a member of the White County chapter, contact Brady Wooten at (217) 853-9621 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
