The Wisconsin DNR continues to follow the State of Wisconsin’s Badger Bounce Back Plan for the health and well-being of all Wisconsinites. Phase 1 of the plan limits the size of in-person gatherings, and many June events will be canceled, including the upcoming Morning Bird Hike on June 25. Thank you for your interest.

June 25: Morning Birding Hike 7-10am. Grab your binoculars and meet at Dodge County Ledge Park for a birding hike led by Jeff Bahls. Excellent for beginning and experienced birders! This area is a mature hard wood forest along the Niagara Escarpment. .  DNR Staff Jeff Bahls will lead a hike that is excellent for birders of all levels. Binoculars will be available for loan. Free and no registration required.

Ledge Park (82 acres) lies along the Niagara Escarpment, a natural rock ledge which divides the park into upper and lower areas and provides a breathtaking overlook of the famous Horicon Marsh and surrounding countryside. Hiking trails wind along the ledge, between interesting and unique rock formations and through heavily wooded areas. Ledge Park is located in the north central part of Dodge County, between Horicon and Mayville, just off of Hwy TW.  N7403 Park Road – Horicon, WI Latitude: 43.461764/Longitude: -88.581242.
