Join us, as we branch out into new territory! Join Jeff Bahls and DNR Wildlife Supervisor, Andy Paulios, to explore one of Dodge County’s other marshes.  Mud Lake Wildlife Area is approximately 4,500-acres that is in public ownership and over 8,000 acres in total. You will find a diversity of habitat types at Mud Lake Wildlife Area. The Beaver Dam River runs through the heart of the property where it joins the Crawfish River at the southern portion. There are two large lakes, Mud and Chub Lakes. There is a mixture of forested bottomland hardwoods, forested upland hardwoods, grasslands and marsh. 

Possible birds include American bittern, sora, pelicans, black and Forsters terns, bald eagle and a variety of warblers.  We will start our tour boarding a bus at the Reeseville Community Center at 406 N. Main Street, in Reeseville, WI located in SW Dodge county.

Bus departs at 8 AM SHARP. We will bird several habitats around the marsh and return to the Reeseville Community center at 1 PM.

Bring your usual birding things. NO lunch provided on this trip.  Snack will be included. Bathrooms will be a single port-a-potty stop along the way. Tour could be heavy walking with up to a ½ mile of walking at a time along multiple DNR service trails.

This hidden gem is waiting to be discovered!
