voted wisconsin's top natural wonder
The Horicon Marsh is the largest freshwater cattail marsh in the world. Located in southeastern Wisconsin, this vast wetland is less than an hour's drive from both Milwaukee and Madison. While the marsh is renowned for its migrant flocks of Canadian Geese, it is also home to nearly 300 other species of birds.
The Horicon Marsh was carved by glaciers, harnessed and hampered by man, and finally given back to nature. Hundreds of thousands of waterfowl each year and the 500,000 annual visitors who enjoy their presence are a testament to the preservation efforts of recent years and prompted the construction of a state-of-the-art educational center.
The famous avian resting place that sprawls over 31,653 acres, mostly in Dodge County, has not changed much in recent decades, but the history of this internationally significant wetland is as fascinating and diverse as the wildlife that call it home.
