Sallandse Ridge National Park - Nijverdal
The Sallandse Heuvelrug is one of the largest contiguous nature reserves with a wealth of animals and plants. One of the animals that deserves special attention is the black grouse. One of the last populations in Western Europe lives here. Staatsbosbeheer and Natuurmonumenten work together to keep the heathland vital and rich in structure. In order to guarantee peace in the breeding season, part of the paths will be closed to visitors. Fortunately, there is much more to discover: the rare great crested newt, the viviparous lizard and the nightjar and wheatear have found a habitat here because of the fens and pools. So take your time for the Sallandse Heuvelrug: you can wander here for hours.
