Horicon National Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin: The Largest Freshwater Cattail Marsh

The International Crane Foundation, the only institution in the world to breed all 15 crane species, including the highly endangered whooping crane, is just one of the unique birding spots in the free guide “Great Wisconsin Birding & Nature Trail-Southern Savanna Edition.”

The fifth and final volume of the guide covers 71 points in the Southern Savanna region of Wisconsin. The guide provides site descriptions, contact information, species information, seasonality, directions and nearby food and lodging information.

Highlights of the region include the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge, the largest freshwater cattail marsh in the United States, which provides rest for roughly 200,000 migrating birds and endangered species.

In Baraboo, the Travel Green Wisconsin-certified Aldo Leopold Legacy Center provides a hands-on nature experience, and Cave of the Mounds near Blue Mounds features rock formations and rare bird species.
