Southeast Missouria

SEMO Quail Unlimited, a new conservation group, was formed and elected officers July 22 in a meeting in Dexter.

Quail Unlimited was established nationwide in 1981 to battle the problem of dwindling quail and other wildlife habitat. It has become the only national nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to the wise management and conservation of wild quail as a valuable and renewable resource.

The local chapter primarily will focus on improving habitat in the Southeast Missouri area that will favor production and survival of small game, especially quail, rabbit and dove.

The next meeting of the SEMO Quail Unlimited chapter will be 7 p.m. Aug. 19 at Otter Slough Conservation Area, located approximately 10 miles southwest of Dexter. At the meeting, a board of directors will be elected and key committees will be formed. Information also will be presented on "Bringing Back the Bob White."
