What is a Nature-Rich Community Park Passport?
In an effort to encourage use of the great resources in the Holland/Zeeland area, we developed this park passport program to support the effort to make a nature-rich community. This passport is just one way we can create a more healthy, happy and nature-literate community that sees the value in experiences in the natural world.
You can find a copy of the Park Passport at your nearest nature center, either Herrick District Library branch, or download a Park Passport you can print at home. Highlighted inside are fourteen local parks in the greater Holland/Zeeland area that are worth a visit. Each page has a list of attractions and amenities, as well as a Challenge Question. Be on the lookout for signs at each stop that provide the answer to the Challenge Question.
Once you have visited at least ten of the parks and successfully answered the question, return with your completed passport to the Outdoor Discovery Center or DeGraaf Nature Center during regular business hours to claim a prize. Ambitious people may be able to visit all of these sites over a long weekend, but you have until the end of 2019 to get all your visits completed.
