The Geology Trail in the DeGraaf Nature Center in Holland, Michigan was created and maintained by The Tulip City Gem and geology Trail Club.
Geology Trail at DeGraaf Nature Center History
In 2003, the Board of Directors received permission from the DeGraaf Nature Center to develop a Geology Trail at this Holland City Park, and began the purchase and solicitation of specimens. By Spring 2005, eleven large rocks were gathered and installed by Ken Hoekstra and Bob Sherwood on concrete platforms. Identifying signage was added near the rocks and a handout pamphlet was made available at the Center’s information desk. Eleven years later the signage was upgraded and a larger “Introductory” sign was installed. The Club lends a hand every year or so to prune back shrubs and do major weeding around the platforms.
