Plano Parks and Recreation embarked on a special project in summer 2020 to re-establish the Bobwhite quail population at Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve. So far, staff has released 50 of these native birds into the wild with great success. Our hope is that these birds will thrive and restore the population at Plano's largest park. Ensuring their success depends on us to keep an eye on them in the nature preserve. If any visitors come across these birds while on a walk or bike ride, please let us know where you saw them. You can email your sightings to Kymh@plano.gov or
or call/text 972-742-9670.
