As quail season draws to a close this month, we highlight some face-to-face outreach efforts for both youth and adults, a new publication, and a video about quail parasites—but probably not the ones you're thinking of!
Our quail ambassador in training, Bonnie (formerly Beauregard) Blue attended a career day at Lakeview Middle School last month. This little scaled hen did a great job promoting wildlife conservation as a career!
We also made an appearance at the Dallas Safari Club convention—one of the largest gatherings for hunters, conservationists, and wildlife enthusiasts in the state. Lots of folks here have a passion for quail.
