Horicon Marsh Bird Club was organized in August 1994 for the purpose of studying and sharing with others the rich bird life of the Horicon Marsh and Eastern Wisconsin. Through regularly scheduled field trips, meetings and other activities; members develop a better understanding and deeper appreciation of the diversity of birds and their important habitats.
Although the club is primarily focused on the education and observation of birds, members are offered the opportunity to become involved in conservation projects and important wildlife surveys, which help monitor the status of our birds and aid in managing their populations and habitats.
From backyard bird watchers to field ornithologists and researchers, Bird Club activities are available for novice and expert birders alike. We encourage families and youth to join us in observing and studying Wisconsin Birds.
We hope to see you at many of the events that the education center has to offer. All events are subject to change. The Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center is located on Hwy. 28 between the cities of Horicon and Mayville.
