DeGraaf Nature Center

  • 600 Graafschap Road,
  •  Holland, MI 49423

You don't need to drive out of town to get in touch with nature: take a walk on the wild side at DeGraaf Nature Center. If you have 20 minutes or 2 hours, you will enjoy exploring the woodland, shrub, marsh and pond trails of this 18 acre preserve located within the Holland city limits.
During the winter, snow permitting, you may borrow a pair of snowshoes to explore the trails. Mostly intermediate to advanced trails that are well-marked for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing.
The Brower Interpretive Center is brimming with information and hands-on displays and special events are scheduled throughout the year.
No pets allowed on trails.
