HORICON, Wis. - Throughout the year visitors to the Horicon Marsh International Education Center located at the Horicon Marsh State Wildlife Area can attend public lectures on the geology, history, wildlife and management of the Horicon Marsh ecosystem, as well as international efforts to protect wildlife. Now anyone with access to the Internet can do the same thing.
From learning the latest about black bear research and management in Wisconsin, to landscaping for birds, to efforts to survey the Ganges River floolplains in northern India for cranes and storks, visitors to the Horicon Marsh Education page on the Department of Natural Resources website can now view online videos of the lecture series.
"We're very fortunate to have a wide variety of biologists and researchers willing to do presentations on their work for our visitors," says Liz Herzmann, assistant naturalist at the Horicon Marsh. "Our new Horicon International Education Center is equipped with the technology to video tape these presentations and to share them with an even broader audience through our website."
The Horicon Marsh Naturalist Program and Lecture Series schedule is also available on the DNR website.
