Conservation, Outreach, Hunting – Sharing a passion for outdoor sports with the next generation.

OUTREACH

What We Do

  • We are dedicated to the wise use and management of quail and upland game and other wildlife habitat management.
  • We promote conservation, preservation, management, habitat development and other activities relating to the various species of quail, dove, upland birds, and upland wildlife species in the local, regional and national habitat landscapes.

Fund Raisers

We raise funds through grants, banquets, raffles, youth events, shooting events, dinners, auctions and other activities in order to assist federal agencies, state fish and game agency; wildlife, agricultural, extension and research units; colleges, universities, youth projects, and other qualified organizations to conduct and promote wildlife habitat development and management, and other meaningful programs for the conservation, enhancement, and propagation of wild quail and upland wildlife.

 Habitat Outreach

  • We contribute to the welfare of upland wildlife populations and their habitat and in so doing provide benefits to many other forms of wildlife in their local area through Chapter projects.
  • We promote best conservation interests of conservationist / hunter / landowner relationships, good sportsmanship, and preserve the best conservation traditions of hunting being good stewards of the land.
  • We sponsor VA DGIF Habitat Restoration Seminars with purpose of getting land owners to know us and our State counterparts who can help them with their land habitat projects.

Adult and Youth Outreach

  • We help Boy Scouts by introducing them to State and Federal Agencies so they can conduct Eagle Projects.
  • We donate funds to scout (boy or girl) projects for habitat restoration work.
  • We conduct or assist youth and adult shooting programs and/or educational programs.
  • We assist adults in getting trained as Certified NRA Range Safety Officers and Rifle and Shotgun Instructors.

Through Friends of the NRA Foundation, we loan guns, shooting and safety equipment to youth and adult organization. Through the NRA Training Program, we also help to provide Range Safety Officers and Certified for these organizations to hold their events.
