What wonderful rains we have had! In the last week we’ve had nearly four inches of rain at Quartz Mountain Nature Park. Friday the 18th thru Sunday the 20th, over an inch and a half fell. For the first twenty one days of the month we’ve had nearly five inches of rain. Lake Altus-Lugert is 75% full and rising.

Quartz Mountain Nature Park is green and lush. As of 8AM Monday the 21st, Greer County, which includes all of the Main Park, Grocery Store and Lodge/Cabin areas was still in a Governor Declared Burn Ban. We anticipate the Burn Ban will be lifted before the Memorial Holiday weekend. Follow the Quartz Mountain Nature Park Face-Book page, or the Park website (www.quartzmountain. org) – as soon as we know the Burn Ban has been lifter, we’ll start getting the word out.
