     The 89er Chapter of Quail Forever is an invaluable partner in conservation with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation and sportsmen. It is a non-profit habitat conservation organization founded in 2005 as part of Pheasants Forever in response to the continuing decline of quail populations locally and throughout their natural range, working as a valuable partner with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation and Oklahoma State University research biologists. Just this month the chapter donated $8,000 to the Wildlife Department for equipment purchases and habitat work at Cross Timbers Wildlife Management Area in southern Oklahoma, and many other donations totaling thousands of dollars and many volunteer hours have continually benefitted wildlife across the state.
