Description

After a cup of coffee at Fiets En Wandelcafé'T Groene Woud, east of Boxtel and north of Liempde, put on your walking shoes. Today you will explore the Geelders, a varied nature reserve with coppice walls, deciduous forest, poplar forest, farmland and also heathland. From 1314 to 1802 it belonged to a large area for shared use by the farmers of the surrounding villages. Carthusians used the area for oak coppicing in the seventeenth century. The name Geelders probably comes from'gelde\\\', which means low and wet area. It is a loam forest, a forest on loam soil so that the moisture does not quickly sink. This is one of the most important wet forest areas in the Netherlands. Tawny owls and stone martens hide in the hollows of trees. The honey buzzard also lives here.
