2018

Our first event of the year was Winter Eagle Fest at Mauricetown Fire Hall on 2/3. SJQP has been annually setting up a display table to promote our efforts and celebrate with other bird lovers of all ages while sharing Bobwhite Quail facts.

SJQP exhibited some quail and educated the public at the Cumberland County 3H Mall Expo on 3/10 at the Cumberland Mall. We always have a great time with the kids from our associate, Poultry Pride 4H Club.

We shared educational tidbits and information on what individuals can do to assist in the fight to bring the Bobwhites back at the Eco-Fair at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center on 5/5.

 

 

 

On 4/7, SJQP hosted a Youth Education Conservation Day at Unimin Corp grounds. What a blast! Donuts, hay rides, bird feeders, pizza, certificates, goodie bags, planting, seeding, education, conservation, habitat creation, dog show, quail chicks from Northern Snow Quail Farm, and adults from Hider's Quail Farm, oh my! Special thanks to Smokey the bear, NJ Forestry Service, NJ Audobon, NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife, and all the kids! A little chilly this year, but what a great time! We learned a lot and laughed even more! Thanks to ALL who participated! See you next year!!!

Board members from SJQP attended the Division of Fish and Wildlife Freshwater Fisheries Forum on Sat. 2/18 at Batsto Village where they learned about the research and management plan with regards to the freshwater programs as well as had the opportunity to discuss with Division officials how SJQP and the Division can work together to advance our mission! Great things are happening!

SJQP members set up an information booth at this year’s Eagle Festival in Mauricetown. The event generated a lot of interest in the mission of SJQP and the plight facing grassland wildlife today. Thanks to the efforts and planning of SJQP Board Member Valerie Hider and Alexis, the event was a great success.

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.
