Join Jeff Bahls and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service staff on a guided birding bus tour across 3+ miles of the interior of the refuge via Old Marsh Road. A reconfigured route this year visits many of the normal hotspots that have been your favorites for so long, but this year we will be able to travel Old Marsh Road by bus. We will start at Horicon National Wildlife Refuge headquarters and begin with some grassland, marsh and forested sections along the way to Old Marsh Road.
This is a unique opportunity to travel an area of the marsh that is closed to public access during this time of the year. Viewing highlights include many species of water birds, spring warblers etc. Wear good walking shoes. Meet at the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center, W4279 Headquarters Rd. off Cty. Rd. Z on the east side of the marsh. The bus will depart at 6:00 AM SHARP. Bring your own snacks. Registration with payment required.
With the cooperation of the USFWS, a portion of each registration fee is being donated to the Friends of Horicon National Wildlife Refuge.
