Why We Exist and Purpose of our Chapter

Central Oklahoma 89ers Chapter of Quail Forever was formed in October 2005 - the first chapter formed in Oklahoma and among the first in the nation. The chapter was founded because of the concern for declining quail populations in Oklahoma and nationwide.

Quail populations have declined more than an astounding 60% from quail populations that existed in the early 1990's. The reasons for these declines have been soundly debated and researched with most researchers agreeing that loss of quail habitat is one of the most significant reasons for the decline. Weather is another significant factor - but we can't control the weather. However, we can do something about habitat!

Quail Forever chapters are dedicated to conservation: the promotion, preservation, and dedication of quail habitat with also the mission of reaching out to engage and educate our youth, the backbone of our future. In August 2005, Pheasants Forever formed the national Quail Forever (QF), a 501 (C) (3) non-profit with a top rating from Charity Navigator.

Quail Forever uses the same successful fundraising model developed by Pheasants Forever that allows local chapters to determine 100% of how their locally raised conservation funds will be spent. In other words, all the fundraising dollars that we raise in Oklahoma stays in Oklahoma to further our efforts to protect , enhance and educate all efforts for quail habitat and related wildlife species. We do not share our fundraised dollars with our national organization, it survives on membership dues, product sales and national corporation donations.

 Join us in our Quail Forever mission! We work to accomplish our goals through habitat improvement, land management, public awareness, education, youth programs and conservation advocacy.
