  • “One of our goals at Texas Tech Quail is to spark interest in wildlife management and specifically quail management at an early age. Providing teachers and students this streaming event gives them a window into what we do on a day-to-day basis and enhances their science education.”     
  • “Our hope is that by reaching so many classrooms we can highlight the Department of Natural Resources Management at Texas Tech and hopefully interest students in coming here and becoming our next generation of professional wildlife biologists.”
