Birds of Horicon Marsh
The interior of Horicon Marsh is home to a wide variety of marsh birds, from ducks and geese to pelicans, herons, egrets and cormorants. However, the scattered woodlands provide home to a great array of songbirds that can be found during the spring and fall migration as well as summer nesting populations. A close look may reveal a range of colorful songsters hiding among the dense foliage.
Schedule a Tour or Class
There are no fees for classes or students; but donations are accepted. School donations are used to support education programs at the marsh. There is no charge for tours, but reservations must be made at least 3 weeks in advance. To arrange a tour, call 920-387-7893. A volunteer member of the Friends group or a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources naturalist educator will help you.
