Looking for something to do this weekend? Do you like the outdoors? Hiking? Birding? Well, go to the Horicon Marsh Bird Festival!
The Horicon Marsh is the largest freshwater cattail marsh in the United States, a “Wetland of International Importance,” and an “Important Bird Area.”
Every year the Horicon hosts a Bird Festival in May. This is the 15th year, and a full list of events is available from the Horicon Marsh Bird Club’s web site. Check the event listing to see if any opportunities are full already (the bus trips fill up)!
You can learn more about the marsh from the websites of the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Andersen Library is a federal and Wisconsin depository library with many federal and state government documents on a variety of current and relevant issues available to you in print, microfiche, CD-ROM, and electronically. Come check out your government at Andersen Library!
