The Jayhawk Chapter of the Quail and Upland Wildlife Federation started in Lawrence, KS in 1985 originally as a local chapter of Quail Unlimited (QU). When the QU organization dissolved in 2008, we joined the Quail and Upland Wildlife Federation (QUWF) and have been very happy ever since.
Our local chapter in Lawrence, KS promotes outdoor youth efforts and wildlife habitat conservation.. Specifically, we help fund the Kansas Quail Initiative, the Kansas City Crushers (a youth sporting clay organization), the local Hunter Education program, and put on a youth dove hunt, youth pheasant hunt, youth turkey hunt and a youth deer hunt.
Our main fund raising event is the annual banquet usually held in September or October. Our next banquet will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2023.
We are always interested in volunteers who can help us with our annual banquet and youth events. Please contact us if you'd like to learn more or have any questions.
