The Friends of Glacial Heritage Area and Jefferson/Dodge County Bird Walks are pleased to organize monthly bird walks again this year, starting with a walk around Zeloski Marsh in the Lake Mills Wildlife Area on Sunday, April 19, from 9 am to about noon. The walk will start at the parking lot at W9054 London Road in Jefferson County. Please see www.theropod.org/walkslist15.html for a map and other details.
Led by local bird enthusiasts, the guided walks are a great way to not only see and learn about birds in our area but also to interact with other birders and visit special Glacial Heritage Area properties such as Zeloski Marsh. The trails at Zeloski are rated easy, and we'll cover anywhere from a mile to two miles. Please bring binoculars and appropriate walking attire. Spotting scopes are welcome.
Zeloski Marsh, almost 2,000 acres in total, is restored wetland, consisting of managed impoundments that aid migrating and nesting birds as well as important wetland plant species. The well-maintained access lanes and the Glacial Drumlin State Trail around the impoundments provide excellent wildlife-viewing opportunities.
