Department of Fish and Wildlife
Public meetings scheduled to discuss quail restoration plan and future efforts
FRANKFORT, Ky. – A series
of public meetings to discuss Kentucky’s quail restoration successes and gather
input about future efforts will kick off next week.
The recent release of Kentucky’s 2015
Quail Benchmark Report details efforts over the past five years to restore
quail habitat through the use of broad focus areas instead of concentrating on
patchworks of small farms.
Kentucky Fish and Wildlife officials will
review the report at the public meetings. Department employees will discuss
funding strategies for continuation of the effort then seek input from
participants about how to proceed over the next five years. This could include
creation of new quail focus areas and expansion of existing ones.
