Welcome. We are Quail Forever (QF), a nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of quail and other upland bird populations in Western Idaho.
Quail Forever is the only national organization with a model of chapters keeping 100% of the funds they raise. While belonging to a larger national organization that has a voice on federal and state conservation policies, chapters are tasked with finding projects for their funds. Our chapter takes full advantage of this model using funds raised for projects locally as well as other areas in the state of Idaho. Since forming in 2014, the Snake River Chapter of Quail Forever has spent $17,045 to impact wildlife habitat for quail, pheasants, chukar, sage grouse, and other wildlife on 600 acres of publicly accessible land. Additionally, the local committee has provided funding for hunter access and youth education events with the common goal of supporting the hunting and outdoor community within the Snake River Basin. “Each year, our chapter picks a sizable piece of land in our area and leverage funds with other groups to make significant habitat improvements,” said Brock Salisbury, president of the Snake River Chapter of Quail Forever. “To do this, we encourage the outdoor community of Western Idaho to attend our annual fundraising banquet and help support the wildlife habitat conservation efforts of the most efficient nonprofit conservation group in the country.”
Our Chapter Mission
Protect, restore, and enhance wildlife habitat by establishing and maintaining local projects.
Quail Forever is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of quail and other wildlife populations in North America through habitat improvement, land management, public awareness, and education.
About Our Chapter
Our local chapter in Western Idaho was founded amongst those upland hunters and sportsmen and women in your community. Our goal is to provide those avid outdoorsmen and women an opportunity to assist in the protection and enhancement of quail and other upland bird populations around the local area.
Quail Forever was co-founded in 1982 by co-workers at the St. Paul Pioneer Press and Dispatch, outdoor editor Dennis Anderson and national advertising director Jeff Finden. Both recognized a need for habitat restoration and preservation to ensure the future of pheasants and other wildlife.
PF's first publication entitled "Rooster Tales," published in February 1983. This became the forerunner of today's Quail Forever Journal of Upland Conservation. The fledgling PF held its first banquet on April 15, 1983, drawing 800 people at the inaugural banquet. In January 2007, PF's third-ever National Pheasant Fest in Des Moines, Iowa, became the largest event in PF history, drawing over 24,500 attendees over a three-day span.
Twenty-five years after its inception, Quail Forever has become a grassroots, nationwide upland conservation movement - a national conservation powerhouse. The organization has grown to 110,000 members with over 600 chapters across the U.S. and Canada. Nationwide, Quail Forever has spent $260 million on program expenditures, which have helped fund 347,000 habitat projects affecting 4.4 million acres across North America. Along the way, QF has continued to employ the same unique organizational model of empowering local chapters to determine how 100 percent of their locally-raised conservation funds are spent. This local control allows chapters to see the fruits of their chapter efforts in their own communities.
Our Local Habitat Projects
We actively partner with other chapters and Idaho organizations of natural resources on many habitat projects.
