Private Lands Biologists

Wondering what opportunities exist for quail management on your property? Already have some areas devoted to quail, but are looking for suggestions on how to make them better? Contact a Private Lands Biologist!

The Private Lands Biologist (PLB) is your go-to source of information for all of your bobwhite (and other early successional wildlife) management needs. PLBs provide the following services to all private landowners in Virginia:

  • FREE site visits
  • FREE technical assistance
  • FREE management plans for quail and other early successional wildlife species
  • Help with sign-up for financial assistance programs for habitat projects
  • And more, but… WE DON’T STOCK QUAIL

The PLB position was created through a partnership between the Conservation Management Institute of Virginia Tech, the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. A HUGE thanks to our partners! Without their involvement, we would not have Private Lands Biologists… and the Private Lands Biologists are the backbone of the Quail Recovery Initiative.

Check out the latest issue of our annual publication, The Bobwhite Bulletin (PDF), for landowner highlights, insight from the Quail Team, and updates on our initiative.
