Wolf River State Wildlife Area
Water shapes Winnebago County. This 1,620-acre property is a good example of how water is captured, filtered and renewed by vast wetlands. The bird and animal life here is extensive. The Wolf River SWA offers the birder good opportunities to experience the Wolf River and its delta on Lake Poygan by kayak or canoe. Ashore, there are hiking trails that take you close to the river and into marshy areas. This property is a favorite with anglers and hunters. In dry years, spring and fall shorebirds can be numerous here as they search the mudflats for insects. Overhead, soaring Bald Eagles and Osprey hunt for fish.
