The dog days of summer have arrived and a number of events at Horicon Marsh in July will give visitors an opportunity to soak in the sunshine. Each July event is free of charge and does not require advance registration. While you are there, don't forget to check out the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center's new Explorium (admission fees can be found online).

  • July 5, 1-2 p.m. - Wetland Food Webs

Participants will learn more about the diverse food web at Horicon Marsh, including predator and prey relationships and the role played by plants, animals and insects. This event is perfect for kids of all ages.

  • July 7, 6:30-8 p.m. - Martin Mania

"Martin Mania" will explain why purple martins are dependent on man-made structures and what humans can do to help. Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources staff will explain the life cycle, biology and species status for these colorful birds and lead a tour to check out purple martin houses and monitor nesting progress. If conditions permit, licensed bird bander, Dick Nikolai, will capture, band and release purple martins for scientific study.

  • July 12: 10-11 a.m. - Meet Curly the Mammoth

Head to Horicon July 12 and meet Horicon's resident mammoth, Curly. Participants will learn more about giant beasts that once roamed the marsh, including what happened to the Ice Age creatures of the past, how were they used as game animals, and how hunting has evolved since the time of the glaciers. This event is appropriate for kids of all ages.

  • July 14, 10-11 a.m. - Stories at the Marsh

Join a DNR conservation educator for a "Mammoth Madness" themed storytelling and craft-making session at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center. This event is best for children ages 1-10.

The Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center is located between Horicon and Mayville on Highway 28. For a detailed list of all Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center special events, please visit the Friends of Horicon Marsh website at www.horiconmarsh.org. For more information regarding Horicon Marsh education programs, contact Liz Herzmann, DNR wildlife conservation educator, at 920-387-7893 or via email at Elizabeth.Herzmann@wisconsin.gov
