The North Egyptian Quail Forever has scheduled its 1st annual indoor/outdoor banquet.
The event will be held on July 21st at 5 pm at the ‘A Fair Barn’ on Hotze Road. Tickets include dinner and drinks. There will be numerous guns and outdoor items.
All proceeds will be used for habitat projects and youth events in Marion County. It is more important now than ever before to restore Bobwhite Quail populations. There are already increases in quail numbers on existing projects.
