MADISON (WKOW) -- State wildlife officials are inviting the public to Horicon Marsh this month to participate in free nature programs such as a birding class, a waterfowl presentation and hike, and an open presentation on marsh mammals.
The programs will be conducted at the International Education Center between the cities of Horicon and Mayville. They're all free and open to the public. No registration is required.
Horicon Marsh in Dodge County includes a state wildlife area and a national wildlife refuge. The agenda also includes informative programs on marsh birds and geese. The area is known as a major flyway for migrating ducks and Canada geese. Bird watchers from around the Midwest visit the marsh each fall.
