On June 16, 2011, from 4:00-8:00 PM the Bradford Research and Extension Center will host the "Bobwhite Quail Management and Native Plant Field Day". This field day will consist of wagon tours that give participants an opportunity to see bobwhite quail management demonstrations and research in progress and to see how native plants can be used for conservation. Participants will also discover how native plants can be used for landscaping as well as to clean up water run-off in rain gardens and backyard wildlife by providing seed, nectar, and insects for birds. Native plants can also be used for bobwhite quail habitat and participants will get to see first hand how they can be incorporated in land use management such as edge feathering and native grass management. This year’s field day will also feature indoor classroom presentations that cover basic bobwhite quail management on your farm. For those who want more in depth knowledge of quail habitat a Quail Summit is planned from 1:00-4:00 PM (Registration Required).
