AAA Editor Notes
Horicon Marsh State Wildlife Area and Education Center is at N7725 SR 28. The southernmost third of the Horicon Marsh, an 11,000-acre state-owned area, is primarily used for recreation. Activities include geocaching, snowshoeing, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, bird-watching and wildlife photography. A .25-mile-long boardwalk begins at the trailhead along with access to more than 5 miles of hiking trails. Wildlife educator programs are offered throughout the year.

The Education Center features displays about wildlife and the marsh as well as a video about the Horicon Marsh. A children’s discovery area includes activities and crafts. The Explorium, an interactive exhibit that describes the history of the marsh from the Ice Age to present day, features a walk-through glacier, relics from European settlement, an airboat simulator and a crawl-through muskrat hut.
