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.

Dates, times and locations for the meetings include:

 

·         Berea: Wednesday, April 22, 6:30 p.m. (Eastern), Madison County Farm Bureau Federation Community Room, 216 Pauline Drive

·         Madisonville: Thursday, April 23, 6:30 p.m. (Central), Hopkins County Cooperative Extension Office, 75 Cornwall Drive

·         Elizabethtown: Wednesday, April 29, 6:30 p.m. (Eastern),  Pritchard Community Center, 404 S. Mulberry Street
