With the Quartz Mountain Music Festival kicking off Friday in the Robert M. Kerr Performing Arts Center, those driving up to the arts center should be especially cautious.
"Last year the mesquite and oak trees had very good crops, " Hokanson said. "Lots of mesquite beans and tons of acorns fed our white-tail deer population over the mild winter. The same was true for the year before. So this means we have some very healthy does. They in turn gave birth to triplets," she said.
Because of this, Hokanson urges drivers to be especially careful driving through the park area. "Most park visitors are used to seeing one or even two fawns trailing behind their mothers. That third fawn, in the case of the triplets, is a big surprise. So drive slow and look for two or three fawns as you travel in and around Quartz Mountain."
Quartz Mountain Arts & Conference Center and Nature Park is also pleased to announce that wireless Internet service has arrived in the main park. For guests staying in the two bedroom cabins in the main park, RV campers in the Scissortail Campground and customers at the Quartz Mountain Grocery Store, “staying connected” is now simple. "Just turn on your wireless capable computer in these park areas and you're connected," said Hokanson. "This is just one of the many projects we're undertaking to keep providing the services our guests want."
