The Stratumse Heide is an area between Eindhoven and Geldrop. It is a very bumpy kind of
heathland as a lot of driftsand has deposited here over the years. These sand hills then became
overgrown after the 1930s. It is a special area that attracts many amphibians. There are a great many
frogs here, for example, due to the alternation between high and low and dry and wet.
Some Scottish Highlanders, a type of cattle, also freely roam the area. Their foraging brings even
more variety to the area.
The Stratumse Heide has a number of fens, the most important of which is the Kanunnikesven. Some
beautiful plants grow here, such as purple marshlock and bogbean.
