Grants to Preserve BobWhite Quail Available in Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, AR - State conservation groups announced today that landowners in three north central counties will be offered money to help preserve the bobwhite quail.

The Damascus Bobwhite Quail Project, which covers areas in Conway, Faulkner and Van Buren counties, will provide money and technical support to landowners who create or restore habitat for the quail.  The bird has been on the decline since the 1980s.
