Why Us

John ChildressI would, first of all, like to introduce myself to you.  My name is John Childress.  I retired in January of 2010 after over 30 years of service with the NRCS at Dalhart TX. I worked designing pipelines, livestock and wildlife watering systems, and windbreaks.  I worked with farmers and ranchers on conservation practices to control erosion and conserve water on their lands.  I am familiar with USDA cost share programs and the standards and specifications for practices that are cost shareable. I planned, wrote and administered CRP contracts from the programs start in 1985.

For over 20 years, I have worked with the local chapter of Quail Unlimited installing wildlife watering facilities and windbreak plantings on the Rita Blanca National Grasslands and private lands.  The systems on the grasslands were approved by the U.S. Forest Service.

I am a conservationist at heart.  I am an avid hunter.  My love for wildlife goes beyond hunting.  I have not hunted quail for over 12 years, but continue to work to improve and develop habitat for them.  I believe that every hunter should have a desire to help improve the habitat that the game that they love need to survive.  Wildlife needs the same things that we need to live – food, water and cover.  Just like humans, they cannot survive without water.  Birds get most of their water from insects during the growing season and from green plants that they eat throughout the year.  They will all go to standing water throughout the year.  During droughts there is very little green plant material around and insects are scarce.  They need the water that we can supply.
