CEED’s Annual Spring Science Program that Brings Conservation Home!

Bobwhite Quail, Conservation, Nature Center

The Northern Bobwhite Quail Project is an educational opportunity to teach community members about this important bird species in our local ecology, predator-prey relationships, animal life cycles, egg incubation, chick brooding, habitat restoration, and doing something good for the environment… through hands-on inquiry learning.

The goals of this project are to…

• To teach about humans’ impact on our local ecosystems and what we can do to help.

• To give participants the chance to make a positive difference for the environment.

• To release Northern Bobwhite Quail in the hopes of bringing back these native birds

• To control tick populations via the Northern Bobwhite Quail, a natural NATIVE tick predator.

• To learn about the devastating impact of domestic cats and other predators on our ground-dwelling birds and other wildlife.

• To give people a deeper understanding about their environment, and how a healthy environment helps everyone.

“It adds so much to our classroom curriculum, and entices the students to learn about all aspects of the Quail, our environment, and our impact…good or bad…that we have on our environment.  No matter what, I’m IN again for next year!”
