Come and experience springtime wonders at a Wetland of International Importance and a Globally Important Bird Area – Horicon Marsh and the communities surrounding it. Horicon Marsh covers 33,000 acres in Dodge County, Wisconsin. The Horicon Marsh Bird Festival will focus on introducing visitors to birds at the peak of the spring migration.
The event will offer walking, boat and bus tours of the marsh with expert leaders, demonstrations on bird banding, live presentations with hawks and owls, night sound hikes, youth programs, and much more.
To help support the Bird Festival and Horicon Marsh Bird Club’s project goals, the Festival holds a Big Sit as their major funding event. Money raised from the event has helped fund a bird feeding station and bird friendly landscape around the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center and other club projects.
