Mooresville, Ind. - July 14 -

Upland conservationists in central Indiana have formed the state’s newest Quail Forever chapter. Known as the Indian Creek Quail Forever chapter, the group will be active in upland habitat conservation projects in Hendricks and Morgan counties that benefit bobwhite quail.

“The Indian Creek Quail Forever chapter is already focusing on upland habitat restoration projects, including those on area public lands, and plans to host youth and shooting sports events as entry points for youngsters to get involved in upland hunting and, ultimately, upland conservation,” says Brian Nentrup, Quail Forever’s regional representative in Indiana.

Quail Forever, a national, nonprofit conservation organization, is dedicated to the conservation of quail, pheasants and other wildlife through habitat improvements, public awareness, education and land management policies and programs. Quail Forever chapters promote local, state, and federal conservation programs which help landowners protect environmentally sensitive acres for quail and other wildlife. Quail Forever also employs a unique model of empowering local chapters with 100 percent control of the chapters' locally-raised funds to complete habitat and youth education projects in the chapters' own communities.
