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 events will be canceled, including the upcoming Morning Bird Hike on July 9. Thank you for your interest.

July 9: Morning Birding Hike 7-10am. Grab your binoculars and meet at Dodge County Harnischfeger Park.  A birding hike led by Jeff Bahls. Excellent for beginning and experienced birders!
