Albany, GA -(Ammoland.com)- Georgia residents concerned with conserving upland habitat for bobwhite quail have formed a pair of new Quail Forever chapters in the state.

The Southwest Georgia Quail Forever chapter is based in the Albany area, and the Upper Chattahoochee Quail Forever chapter has formed north of Atlanta in Cobb and Fulton counties.

The new chapters give an added boost to the newly-formed Florida/Georgia Quail Coalition. Quail Forever has teamed up with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources – Wildlife Resources, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Tall Timbers Research Station & Land Conservancy to promote and support public land quail habitat management and youth shooting sports.

“These new Quail Forever chapters will provide volunteer and financial support for quail habitat projects that are the backbone to sustainable bobwhite quail populations,” says Talbott Parten, a native Georgian and Quail Forever’s regional representative in the state, “And habitat restoration is possible when people band together under the mission of Quail Forever.

Quail Forever 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.
