The Friends of Quail Hollow Ranch (FQH) are a group of volunteers who are dedicated to improving and preserving Quail Hollow’s ecosystem as an exceptional habitat for native plants and animals. We support and expand programs in natural history so that visitors of all ages can appreciate, respect and be inspired by the park’s beauty and biodiversity.
We are a 501-c-3 non-profit organization, founded in 2013 thanks to the leadership of park volunteer, Jim Williams. Jim and the founding Board Members (Renee Shepherd, Donna Ziel, Janie Tibbals and Nancy Macy) realized that the park had been suffering from County budget cuts in spite of an amazing group of over 100 volunteers who annually removed invasive non-natives, restored and expanded trails, enhanced bird habitat (including the installation and monitoring of nest boxes), worked in the garden, performed minor repairs to the aging ranch house (and provided seasonal decorations). The park has an Interpreter, Dan Lazarus, who coordinates the volunteers, provides extensive programs for all ages, and writes the park’s newsletter. Thanks to volunteers, including Jim, a long list of long overdue projects and improvements were identified and FQH is working to promote the community’s awareness of these needs and raise the necessary funds.
