Llano Estacado Chapter of Quail Forever's members are truly passionate about creating, preserving and restoring habitat that benefits pheasants, quail and other upland wildlife. This unique model empowers local chapters with the responsibility to determine how 100 percent of their locally-raised conservation funds will be spent.
Whether it's through improving habitat, informing the public about land management or educating future generations of hunting enthusiasts, conservation is the underlying principle in all we do at the grassroots level.
The Importance of Seed Origin
One of the things our chapter believs in, is the importance of utilizing high-quality local seed to develop our projects. Please take a minute to read the short note from our habitat chair, Don Kahl on the importance of understanding seed origin.
For those considering interseeding grasses or forbs into habitat projects on their property, the following link provides great information on what to look for when purchasing seed. To provide great habitat for quail, pheasants, and other local wildlife, be sure that you go native and avoid non-native or invasive species. Also, be sure to choose varieties that fit our climate and annual rainfall. As always, you can contact your local Texas Parks and Wildlife Department biologist for guidance in planning your project and acquiring the appropriate materials.
Preserving our Natural Resources
Creating, restoring, and maintaining habitat is a constant battle. We invite you to join the Llano Estacado Chapter of Quail Forever of Pheasants Forever in its quest to ensure a country rich in natural resources and long on people willing to work to preserve them. After all, natural resources - pheasants, quail, and other wildlife, plus the land, air, and water on which they live - are our greatest resources.
Local Chapter Projects
Every year the Llano Estacado Chapter of Quail Forever has on going projects throughout the community. With our proceeds from fundraising and donations from community leaders, we are fortunate enough to give back, putting all our money in the ground to preserve habitat throughout our region. If you know of a project or would like to learn more about how to help in the effort to preserve your local habitats, please feel free to contact us with any questions.
