WHAT’S NEW AT MQ: SPRING HAS SPRUNG!
2Q20 Mystic Quarry Newsletter
Nothing says spring is here like fresh green grass, flowers blooming, bees buzzing, and (get ready for it…) baby ducks quacking! That’s right and you will find all of that and more right now at Mystic Quarry!
The Latest Buzz- we have new bees!
Ciao! We are the new guys here at Mystic Quarry! You may hear us around the fresh blooming flowers at the resort. We are the friendly Italian bees, we stay busy keeping our Queen bee happy, pollinating the veggies in the community garden, and of course, making honey! We Italian bees are pretty laid back; we don’t tend to swarm and we make deliziosa honey. Please, bee nice to us, and if you want to learn more ask our lovely new keepers Jim & Courtney!

As if spring wasn’t lovely enough as it is -- add in some adorable baby ducks! These little guys are likely, black Cayuga ducks. They are light in color now, but some will most likely be jet black with iridescent green and purple feathers, while some will be specked with white and gray. Their little black feet are likely to lighten up or turn orange as they mature. Black Cayuga ducks are considered a hardy domestic duck, and yet very gentle and personable. Once full-grown they are said to lay between 100-150 eggs per year.
They are in a special coop with some baby chicks and have already taken them under their wing (literally and figuratively). Their favorite game is follow-the-leader and they already love playing in the water and making a mess of the coop! They now even have their own special pond.
Mystic Quarry’s third annual Pints-n-Pups event is scheduled for Saturday, May 9th! If you like dogs, beer, and music - you’ll love this event! Last year we raised $5,000 for the Comal County Sheriff K-9 unit and our goal is to DOUBLE our donation this year!

Yellow Dog Project
Mystic Quarry is proud to announce we are participating in the Yellow Dog Project! This project aims to easily identify a doggo that may need some space. Dogs can need space for a variety of reasons like general anxiety around strangers, recovering from procedures, being in training, etc. Dogs that could use some space are easily identified by a yellow bandana or yellow ribbon. Mystic Quarry aims to be a safe space for all doggies! Come check out these adorable MQ bandanas available now in the office!

How about a Spring Time Recipe?
Consider a smoothie bowl, a colorful, spring-like treat!
- 1 cup frozen berries (blueberries are my favorite!)
- 3/4 cup Greek plain yogurt
- 1 tsp honey
This will create a thick frozen yogurt. Top with any of your favorites: granola, nuts, cacao nibs, fresh fruit, flaxseeds, a drizzle of nut butter...You get the idea- get creative & enjoy!
We hope you will be able to spend time with us here at Mystic Quarry and enjoy the many activities around the local area to make your stay fun-filled and memorable.
