Little Rock, Ark. – August 28, 2019 –Quail Forever is pleased to announce the hiring of Adam Cooper, a passionate hunter and existing chapter volunteer, as the organization’s Regional Representative in Arkansas, Louisiana and southern Missouri. In this role, Cooper will provide support across a growing region for Quail Forever affiliate volunteers – currently home to a combined 19 Quail Forever chapters and more than 1,800 members – as they focus on public and private lands habitat conservation efforts for quail, pollinators and other wildlife.
Quail Forever empowers county and local chapters with the responsibility to determine how 100 percent of their locally raised conservation funds will be spent – the only national conservation organization that operates through this truly grassroots structure. As a result, chapter volunteers can see the fruits of their efforts locally, while belonging to a larger national organization with a voice on federal and state conservation policy. Cooper will help guide local chapters to achieve the organization’s mission, while also fostering stronger partnerships with state agencies, corporate supporters, donors, and upland hunters.
“Quail Forever continues to grow at an impressive pace thanks to dedicated volunteers and passionate regional representatives helping to assist new chapters,” stated Tom Fuller, field service director for Quail Forever. “The tri-state region of Arkansas, Louisiana and southern Missouri is absolutely an area of growth potential for new chapters, and adding Adam Cooper to the mix gives us great momentum for mission achievement in the southern reaches of quail country.”
A lifetime hunting license holder in the state of Louisiana, Cooper grew up in a hunting family and had plenty of interaction with upland hunters at a young age. A 2011 graduate of Ouachita Baptist University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Christian Studies, Cooper’s work history includes various management positions with Tractor Supply Company and Bed, Bath & Beyond where he gained valuable merchandizing, management, and customer service skills to assist and grow new local chapters in his region.
“Through my involvement with my local chapter, I have experienced firsthand the impacts that Quail Forever has at the grassroots level with its habitat mission and youth engagement,” stated Adam Cooper. “I am excited to bring my passion for the outdoors to Quail Forever, helping to grow and implement the various local, state, and national initiatives promoted by ‘The Habitat Organization.’”
Cooper resides in Little Rock, Arkansas and will work out of his home office to assist regional chapters and volunteers. For more information about Quail Forever in Arkansas, Louisiana or southern Missouri, contact Adam Cooper at (870) 613-4719 or ACooper@QuailForever.Org.
