Conquest Preserve
Free Admission, donations encouraged but not required

The call of the Northern Bobwhite Quail is a nostalgic sound to many on the Eastern Shore – but why have their songs been silent? Join Daniel Small from Washington College’s Center for Environment and Society (CES) for a birding tour of Conquest Preserve, where the CES’s Natural Lands Project (NLP) has implemented grassland restoration for declining bird species, like quail. Learn what it takes to support a covey, conservation needs for the Bobwhite, and grassland specifics that ensure their best success – and how CES has taken success from their experimental grasslands at Washington College’s River and Field Campus (RAFC; formerly known as Chino Farms) out into the community through NLP. And if we are really lucky, the local population of quail might make an appearance during the visit!
