DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA (WALB) – The nation's leader in Quail conservation is moving its headquarters to Albany.

Quail Unlimited's president made the announcement Thursday at Potter Community Center in front of QU Supporters.

Quail Unlimited is currently based in Edgefield South Carolina, and has more than 28-thousand members.

For the past 24-years, members have come to our area for their biggest fundraiser, the celebrity Quail Hunt.

Leaders say it's fitting for the headquarters to be in South Georgia.

"There is an eight acre section that is about 55 acres that's going to be used to build the national Quail Unlimited headquarters office; yes we're going to hire some staff here and the staff in Edgefield S.C. will still remain a part of Quail Unlimited," Bill Bowles, Quail Unlimited President.

Leaders say having the headquarters here could bring more national Quail Unlimited events to our area.

The Phoebe Foundation donated the land for the facility.
