Introducing Holiday Woodlands Recreation Area!

We are excited to celebrate the long awaited closing of the Holiday Woods Recreation Area!  In late 2019, the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund approved a $584,800 grant for the creation of this exciting 145-acre natural area in East Bay Township. This natural area includes the Holiday Woodlands Preserve and an additional 65 acres of natural land between the preserve and the Mt. Holiday Ski Area. This grant, the Holiday Woodlands neighborhood group, East Bay Township, and the generosity of many donors made it possible for the township to purchase both parcels and form the new natural area. Thank you to everyone who made this shining example of community conservation possible!

East Bay Township is hosting a ribbon-cutting at 3 PM and we cordially invite you for hors d’oeuvres and a toast at the Mt. Holiday Lodge at 4 PM.

Please join us Thursday, July 28, 2022
3:00 – 3:30 PM – Ribbon Cutting at Holiday Woodlands Recreation Area 5 Mile Entrance
4:00 – 5:00 PM – Hors d’oeuvres at Mt. Holiday Lodge

  1. This is stupendous news! Having grown up in English Woods, and hanging out with friends in the Holiday Hills neighborhoods, and now enjoying the preserve…I cannot think of a better scenario than acquiring additional acreage.

    I don’t have a lot of spare time to give, but if there is anything I can assist with in helping this preserve flourish, please do not hesitate to reach out. 🙂
