At its April meeting, the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission accepted a donation from the 89er Chapter of Quail Forever to benefit quail habitat in northwest Oklahoma. The donation includes specialized equipment for conducting prescribed burns to be used on the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation’s Beaver River Wildlife Management Area in northwest Oklahoma. For years, wildlife professionals have promoted the benefits of prescribed fire to wildlife habitat, particularly as it pertains quail. The equipment donation will help improve habitat through prescribed burns that eliminate brushy overgrowth and promote new growth of beneficial native vegetation. Read more HERE.
