Bobwhite quail program on tap for nature center

LITTLE ROCK (AGFC) - Why has the bobwhite quail population declined? What is the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission doing to try to reverse the trend? How can landowners manage property to benefit quail? Those are a few of the questions quail hunters can get answered at a seminar sponsored by the AGFC.
      The agency's Quail Program Coordinator Steve Fowler will be the featured speaker at the program scheduled for Feb. 9, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at the Witt Stephens Jr. Central Arkansas Nature Center in Little Rock. Fowler will be providing recommendations and answering questions from attendees. The seminar is designed for landowners who manage at least 40 acres. Individual property owners and hunting clubs are invited to attend. Hunters will get ideas on quail habitat management and information about available incentives.
      The nature center is located within Riverfront Park in the River Market District of downtown Little Rock. Free parking is available along streets in the River Market District. Seating is limited, so call the nature center office at 501-907-0636 to register.
