HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — A controlled burn in Holland Wednesday aimed to kill off invasive species in the Macatawa Marsh.

The burn was active between 11:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. in the area of Window on the Waterfront, east of the River Avenue Bridge, according to the Holland Department of Public Safety.

The Outdoor Discovery Center Macatawa Greenway says the burn will help combat invasive plants, which it hopes will allow native species to grow in the area.
