Did you know that 43% of Holland Township is forested?  A program has been initiated to help people identify trees.  Surrounding the Riegel Ridge Community Center, we now have 11 trees labeled with a plaque containing its common name, the scientific name, and a QR code. The code is something that can be scanned with a smartphone or other device.  By scanning it, you will be led to a township webpage where there is more information.  Then go to the “Holland Tree Sign Map” where the trees on the property are plotted out.

Explore Trees of Holland to see the trees and a map to locate them.

You might be surprised by the diversity of birds that pass through Holland or make this area their home.  Because we have a variety of habitats in the township: woodlands, grasslands, rivers, mountains, wetlands, we have a large number of different species here, including some endangered species.
