Fall brings with it something for everyone in the field from the angler to the hunter.  Just a few recent sessions of shooting the bull tell me that autumn is for the youngest of outdoorsman just learning the games to those of us more seasoned with our eyes focused dead ahead on for example, the whitetail rut.

Horicon Marsh in August: Wild eats, blooms, geocaching, butterfly crafts,
archery, fishing & lots more

Make August your fun, free month at Horicon Marsh and learn what plants are
tasty treats, how to shoot arrows, fish or identify birds, do geocaching,
make butterfly crafts or walk with a Department of Natural Resources
conservation warden to learn about this outdoor career.

Whew! That's a lot, but there's more.

Liz Herzmann, DNR wildlife conservation educator, says the events are free
and do not require advance sign-ups. "These are cool events, great for
families. Just show up," she said. "And save some time during your visit to
check out the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center's new
Explorium<http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/lands/wildlifeareas/horicon/education.html
> (admission fees can be found online)."

Here's what you'll find at Horicon Marsh in August:

August 6: 9:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m.- Outdoor Skills Day

Archery, birding, cooking, hunting and fishing are among the fun things to
be taught by Department of Natural Resources staff and expert volunteers
during the free and family-friendly August Horicon Marsh Outdoor Skills Day.

"There will be something for everyone at this hands-on, family-friendly
event," Herzmann said. "Even if you have a pretty good idea of which
activities appeal to you, it can be a great learning experience for anyone
with an interest in the outdoors."

New this year is a fishing station that will includes a mock fishing trip.
You get to choose the lake and species you want to fish, and then learn how
to plan and execute a successful fishing trip. Also new this year is a
geocaching course. GPS units will be provided.

August 9: 10 - 11:00 a.m.- Wild Edibles of the Marsh

To eat or not to eat, that is the question! Learn about which plants make a
tasty treat and which are not so great to eat.

August 11: 10-11 a.m. - Stories at the Marsh

Join a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources educator for "Butterflies"
themed storytelling and craft-making at the Horicon Marsh Education and
Visitor Center. This event is best for children ages 1-10 years old.

August 15, 10 - 11:30 a.m. - Walk a Mile in a Warden's Shoes Meet a DNR
conservation warden and learn how exactly they keep our natural resources
safe. Great for kids of all ages.

August 16, 10-11 a.m. - Prairie Blooms Walk View the prairies around the
education center and learn about the different flowers and their benefits to
wildlife.
