Marsh Haven Nature Center
This private, non-profit, 47-acre nature center is located next to Horicon National Wildlife Refuge. It offers a good mix of habitat with hiking trails that access prairies, wetlands and woodlands. At the end of the woodland trail, visitors can climb an observation tower with a great overview of the marsh. Marsh Haven offers hikes and tours, a museum, art gallery, gift shop and classroom. Spectacular migrations of Canada Geese are seen during fall migrations with numbers of birds reaching more than 100,000. The restored prairies are best viewed in July and August when blooming wildflowers are at their peak attracting numerous species of colorful butterflies.
