Each fall, tens of thousands of Canadian geese leave their northern breeding grounds and head for Horicon marsh, one of only 15 sites in the US which is designated as a wetland of international importance. Visitors come to witness this annual event, which is certainly one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles in the Midwest. About 100,000 to 200,000 geese arrive on the marsh around mid-September, staying for 4 to 8 weeks, with the population peaking by late October and departing by early to mid-December. All of the birds on this recording are year-round residents of the marsh.
Horicon marsh is located about 65 miles north of Milwaukee, between I-41 and Hwy 151, with easy access from state highways 33 or 49. The marsh is about 31,000 acres in size. With such abundant wildlife in an extensive wetland, you always have something to do. Activities range from hiking, biking and fishing, to canoeing and naturalist guided programs.
