Paddle in Horicon Marsh this summer
Canoes can be rented to bring visitors right into the marsh
HORICON, Wis. – For a good place to view wildlife, Sauk Valley residents can head north into Wisconsin to check out Horicon Marsh.
This is the place to catch all the latest fashions in bird plumage. In the fall, Canada geese move through the marsh traveling between southern Illinois and Hudson Bay in Canada. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though – about 300 species of birds can be found there, including redhead ducks. Thousands of them nest at the marsh each year. Other birds in the area are blue heron, turkeys, yellow-headed blackbirds, pelicans, sandhill cranes and songbirds.
Yet it’s not all about birds. Visitors are apt to see deer, muskrats, foxes, otters, garter snakes and snapping turtles. And the marsh itself is a two-in-one deal.
