Morning Birding Hike-Cancelled

June 11 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am

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 Birding Hike on June 11. Thank you for your interest.

June 11: Morning Bird Hike 7-10am. Grab your binoculars and discover Mud Lake Wildlife Area in Dodge County. Depending on water levels, we will cross over the Beaver Dam river to bird at Waterloo Quartzite Outcrop State Natural Area. We will explore many habitats, including riverine floodplain marsh and old growth oak-hickory forests, working together to build a checklist for this SNA.  DNR Staff Jeff Bahls will lead a hike that is excellent for birders of all levels.

Meeting spot for Mud Lake birding trip. Take Hwy “G” south of Reeseville 1.25 miles to Mud Lake Rd.  Follow Mud Lake Rd 1 mile to parking lot.  GPS 43.275018, -88.838251.
