Management

Holland Wildlife Area was first leased as a public hunting ground in 1951. First parcel of land acquired in 1958. Master plan adopted in 1982. Today the property is primarily used for pheasant hunting through the stocking program. Because of its close proximity to the urban areas of Green Bay and Fox Cities it is highly used.

Today, prescribe burning for grasslands is maintained for a variety of wildlife and sustained forest management to yield fiber and optimize habitat for wildlife. A "natural area" has been established to give significance to the "old growth" bottomland hardwood stand contained within the property.
