Lots To Do At Quail Hollow Ranch This Weekend

There's always a lot to do at Quail Hollow Ranch County Park in Ben Lomond and this weekend there are three organized activities to choose from:

Join with Friends of Quail Hollow Ranch and the Quail Hollow Nest Box Project as they get together to refurbish bird boxes for cavity nesting birds at the County Park on Saturday morning .   Help continue to provide habitat for birds at the ranch and learn a bit about the life cycle of these birds at the same time.  Volunteers will spend a morning of cleaning, repairing, and installing boxes.   For those interested in monitoring the nest boxes, information about upcoming training classes and volunteering to check boxes will be available.  Wear work clothes and shoes and bring something to drink and eat.  Open to anyone who can use a screwdriver and putty knife.

Also on Saturday you can join Phyllis Endicott, local after school science and cooking instructor, for an afternoon of learning to cook and prepare fresh pasta and Italian sodas in the Quail Hollow Ranch Sunset Kitchen. Each person will practice and learn a variety of techniques used in cooking and preparing meals. All ages are welcome, but children under 8 must be accompanied with an adult and registered as a team. A $15 materials fee is due to the instructor on the day of the class. Sign up at or by calling 831-454-7941 by Friday.

On Sunday Feb. 6 from 1-3PM you can join herpetologist, Paul Haskins for a saunter along park trails in search of reptiles and amphibians. Peruse the pond and muse over the meadow while learning about the favorite hangouts and resting places of the indigenous critters that inhabit our neighborhood.  All ages are welcome.
