Field Trip Ottawa Sands, Grand Haven

  • Ottawa Sands 18153 North Shore Drive Ferrysburg, MI, 49456 United States (map)

The 345-acre former Ottawa Sands property in Ferrysburg, which is located on the north bank of the Grand River, includes 219 acres of critical dunes that provide habitat for wildlife and migratory birds, an 80-acre lake, and over one mile of Grand River frontage. The Land Conservancy partnered with Ottawa County Parks (OCP) to purchase it for permanent protection as a public park. A grant from the GHACF to the LCWM helped with the purchase of the land, which will eventually transfer to OCP..
