Horicon National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center

Horicon Park is home to 32,000 acres of ice age legacy, beginning as a lake then gouged out by glaciers and pushed southward. The land has been used as a wildlife refuge since 1943 and is part of the National Ice Age Reserve Unit. The many acres of grasslands and wetlands shelter more than 250 species of birds including geese, herons, egrets and many songbirds. The marsh is best known as a rest stop for over 200,000 migrating Canadian Geese during the spring and fall. The Wildlife Refuge is also home to a variety of upland game such as muskrats, deer and fox. Trails are open year round for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and wildlife observation. Waterfowl and non-waterfowl hunting allowed. Weekend naturalist programs are offered during the spring and fall at DNR offices.
