A little rain doesn’t dampen our spirits! We met so many wonderful people and educated many more at the NJ Wild Outdoor Expo in New Egypt, NJ on September 8 & 9! We learned a lot, too! So worth the time and effort! And had fun!

SJQP along with our exhibit quail spent time at several 4H events. So far, they have made appearances at the 4H Mall Expo, Tractor Supply Chick Days and backyard poultry event, and the 4H Pet Fair. We are introducing the quail to children who have never seen them before, and reminding their parents and grandparents who may have forgotten. Enabling these children to see and experience the quail puts us one step closer to bring them back. Poultry Pride with the South Jersey Quail Project at sold bookmarks, decals and pins. Collecting club donations and educating the public on chick and chicken care, and the plight of the Bobwhite quail. Great job kids! Instilling an appreciation for this creature in children paves their path into the future.

SJQP participated in the Eco Fair at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center in Millville. What a great day! This sparked continued attention to our mission with new members and donations of which we are grateful! SJQP is a 501c3 non-profit organization and dependent on donations for our sustenance. We were able to speak with and educate many people in our undertaking. Everyone loved seeing our special guests, a trio of beautiful Bobwhite Quail. Some had never seen a Bobwhite before, many remember hearing them when they were young, and everyone misses hearing them now.
