  • Title: Quail Hollow State Park::
    Descriptive info: About the Park.. From the Park Manager.. Welcome to Quail Hollow State Park:.. At Quail Hollow we provide the visiting public with three different types of activities.. They are: public recreation, cultural history, and nature appreciation.. Whether you fish in our stocked pond, tour the historic forty room manor house, or attend a program by one of our naturalists, we have something to offer everyone.. Take the time to enjoy and explore Quail Hollow and the other 73 Ohio State Parks.. From the Park Naturalist.. Poison Ivy?:.. A plant that may appear similar to poison ivy and is prevelant along many walkways and trails at the park is actually goutweed, a non-native plant that looks very similar to poison ivy.. Goutweed will not cause you to itch if you touch it.. Goutweed has leaves similar in shape and size to poison ivy, but leaves of goutweed do not all come in threes as on poison ivy.. While goutweed grows as a ground cover as does poison ivy, you will not see it climbing trees nor forming the hairy root vines like its itchy companion.. While they grow in the same areas, often right next to each other, goutweed is more noticeable in winter and early spring months as it holds onto it's green leaves much longer than poison ivy.. It often appears as a green carpet along many of Quail Hollow's trails..  ...   stops.. What we can't see is the exit hole, perpendicular to the path already made.. If you spot an area that seems torn up, this may be where a woodpecker has found the tiny insects and has eaten them before they were able to work their way out.. Either way, woodpeckers destroying the tree in the process of getting to the insects, or the insects destroying the tree as they eat their way out, is all a part of nature's clean up crew.. The tree is now on its way to becoming part of the soil which will provide nutrients to new generations of forest.. Ohio State Parks VIPs.. All throughout Ohio, hundreds of individuals are giving a part of their free time to help make Ohio State Parks the number one park system in the United States.. All of these volunteers are part of the Volunteer-In-Parks (VIP) system.. The VIP system groups all of these volunteers together with a common goal, to assist each park s staff by helping them beautify maintain and promote their park.. Many years ago some of the VIPs at Quail Hollow State Park banded together to form the Quail Hollow Volunteer Association.. This nonprofit organization raises funds and organizes special events specifically for Quail Hollow.. You do not need to be a member of the Quail Hollow Volunteer Association to volunteer your time at the park..

    Descriptive info: About the Quail Hollow Volunteer Association.. Presidents Message.. It doesn t seem possible that another year has rolled around and that it s time to make plans for 2004.. We need to plan events, decide on new projects and finish old ones.. I will welcome any input from all of you and I hope we can keep the lines of communication open.. As I look at the past two and one-half years and contemplate the future, I realize that Shelly has left me some very large shoes to fill.. With the help of my fellow officers, the VIP s and the staff, my wish for all of us is a productive, amicable, interesting, year.. Diane Steimel.. QHVA President.. Introduction.. The Mission statement of Quail Hollow State park is this:.. To nurture in all park visitors a sense of wonder and respect for the natural world.. The QHVA was formed to help the park staff facilitate this main goal by providing personal and funds in order to make the public more aware of our park.. Many things that we do couldn t be done by the limited amount of staff people that the state has working here at this site.. Helping with many important events and programs are just some of the things volunteers do at Quail Hollow State park.. We have regular volunteers who garden, keep our gift shop up and running, do trail maintenance, work in animal care, work at the visitor s center and volunteer to help Barb or another one of our staff persons with programs.. We all enjoy working in this beautiful, serene location surrounded by nature and have helped to enhance the grounds and buildings so that the visitors to our park will be as inspired by Quail Hollow as much as we are.. The.. Quail Hollow Volunteer Association.. though closely tied, is a separate organization from  ...   care for plus several snakes that need attended to.. I would like to welcome our new group of Animal Care people at this time.. It is good to have you with us.. Also I would like to extend a big thank you for the time and effort the Lake Ecology Club puts into checking and cleaning the bluebird boxes.. This makes the naturalist's job a little easier.. Our Fine Furnishing Committee has planned to put some finishing touches on Bart's Bedroom this year.. They want to make it looked more lived in.. This committee is also helping the QHV A fund the painting of the downstairs hallway in the manor.. This will brighten up the manor substantially because it hasn't been done for many years.. What We Want To Do:.. Our big project for the year is the picnic shelter that will be put down at Shady Lane.. I hope to see some construction starting on this soon.. The shelter will make a nice addition to the playground and pond area.. Our next big event will be the Craft and Herb Fair, which is held on the first Saturday and Sunday in May.. Come help us out and then take some time to check out all the different booths set up by the various vendors.. Some of these items make great gifts for the holidays that soon follow.. We have a great group of people coming in again this year.. Call the park office for more information on the Craft and Herb Fair.. I hope to see many of you at our events or programs this year.. Keep in touch with nature by taking one of our walks or hikes.. Quail Hollow is a pleasant place to visit and a great place to volunteer!.. Board Members.. President:.. Diane Steimel -.. Virginia Gamble.. Todd Cartner.. Dennis Kohler.. Scott Karlo.. Rich Keslar.. Linda Knipfer..

  • Title: Quail Hollow State Park::
    Descriptive info: About the Park.. Park History.. The turn of the 19th century witnessed the coming of frontiersmen to northeastern Ohio.. Although the land was still wilderness, the American Indians were already being forced westward.. Tribes native to what is now Stark County, principally the Delawares, were virtually gone by 1810.. One of the earliest settlers to enter the region was Conrad Brumbaugh.. His first home on the new property was built around 1820 on land that was to become the park.. It was a two-story log house measuring 24' x 24', complete with a cellar constructed of stone.. By 1842, a wooden framed house which incorporated the original cabin was built.. Many years later, this house was destroyed by fire.. Acquisition of the Brumbaugh homestead and other properties, ultimately totaling 720 acres, was begun in 1914 by Harry Bartlett Stewart.. The Stewart's original tract, adjacent to the Brumbaugh homestead, was called the Minnie Taylor Farm after Harry Stewart's wife.. The small farm house on the Minnie Taylor Farm was built in 1838.. During the first few years the Stewarts owned it, the home was used mainly on weekends during the autumn hunting season.. By 1929, additions to the farm house and construction of its two neighboring structures were completed and the  ...   their home until 1975 when they offered the acreage and buildings to the state foe one-half the appraised valuation.. The U.. S.. Department of Interior provided funds for the state to acquire Quail Hollow State Park.. On May 15, 1975, Quail Hollow came under the administration and management of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Parks and Recreation.. Nature of the Area.. The rolling fields, stately woodlands and moist wetlands of Quail Hollow are evidence of the effects of glaciation which occurred over 12,000 years ago.. Glaciers have had a profound effect on the drainage system, topography and soil/mineral composition of the area.. Natural lakes are a feature of the glaciated landscape.. These bodies of water were formed when large pieces of ice broke off the glacier and melted in depressions forming these kettle lakes.. Most are small, old and more properly classified as bogs or marshes.. Nearby Congress Lake is one of Ohio's natural lakes.. Quail Hollow's habitat diversity allows for an abundance of plant and wildlife populations.. A tall-grass prairie supports blazing star, sneezeweed and other prairie plants.. The woodland swamps is home to spring peepers, chorus and green frogs while the deciduous and coniferous forests provide shelter for the red fox, raccoon, skunk and white-tailed deer..
