FORT SMITH – The Janet Huckabee Arkansas River Valley Nature Center will host a special workshop on northern bobwhite habitat from 6 to 8 p.m., Oct. 24.

Thanks to new initiatives under the Working Lands for Wildlife partnership, many programs are available to provide landowners with tools to increase wildlife habitat on their properties without taking them out of production for agriculture or other land uses. Combined with other Farm Bill programs, these can help offset costs of putting critical wildlife habitat back on the ground to help support the comeback of the northern bobwhite.

In addition to the overview of cost-share opportunities for landowners, presenters at the scheduled workshops will cover basic quail biology and habitat management as well as an update on the AGFC’s quail habitat programs on public land.

Dinner will be provided at the workshops for landowners who register in advance. Call Bob Scott with Quail Forever to register 479-495-2441 for the workshop.
