Holland Landing Conservation Area

This Conservation Area is right next door to Anchor Park in Holland Landing. A network of hiking trails leads through both pine plantation and native forest. Much of this property is underlain by sandy soil, deposited as a river delta thousands of years ago. This area was reforested by LSRCA in the 1960s to reduce erosion of the sandy soils, however in the days before European settlement, at least part of this property was a tall grass prairie. Even now, remnant species including big bluestem and bergamot can be found along some of the trails.
