FLOCK TO HORICON MARSH BOAT CRUISE DAYTRIP
Friday, October 9, 2015, 8AM to 5:30PM
Considered one of the nation's top birding spots, Horicon Marsh is a state and federal wildlife refuge welcoming up to 300,000 migrating birds each spring and fall. Blue herons, cranes, ducks, geese, pelicans, and other birds that will spend the winter in warmer climes have easy access to open water to fish before continuing their journey south. Tens of thousands of songbirds, marsh dwellers, and other winged creatures will be passing through Horicon's wetland. The United Nations has recognized Horicon Marsh as a "Wetland of International Importance."
You will watch a short video before the 1-hour narrated cruise and tour giving you an intimate view of the marsh as the pontoon drifts silently through the shallows. Be sure to bring your binoculars and camera. Sales of gift shop items help to support the work of the Horicon Marsh.
Enjoy a wonderful lunch at NOLA North Grille in the newly restored Audubon Inn in Mayville. You will be presented with a choice of three entrees (vegetarian included). Dessert and beverage are also included.
We stop in nearby Theresa, former home of Solomon Juneau and home of Widmer's Cheese. Be sure to visit Confections by Joel, a shop specializing in Wisconsin-made products owned by Joel, a young blind entrepreneur who makes specialty chocolates.
