Your National Wildlife Refuge System 
Lands for Wildlife
Horicon National Wildlife Refuge is one of over 550 unites that make up the National Wildlife Refuge System -- a unique network of 105 million acres of lands managed especially for wildlife by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Lands for People
The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and other habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.

Recreation and education are important parts of the refuge system. Refuges offer many opportunities for the public to observe, enjoy, and learn about plants and animals in their natural habitats. Visitors may also engage in many wildlife-dependent recreational activities, including wildlife observation, nature photography, hunting, fishing, environmental education, and interpretation.
The marker is at the seventh stop on the three-mile Horicon National Wildlife Refuge Auto Tour & Trails tour loop. The entrance to the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge | Tempike Auto Tour is located on eastbound Wisconsin Highway 49, about three miles east of the Wisconsin Highway 151 exit, Waupun, Wisconsin 53963.

"Horicon" -- a Mohican word meaning pure, clean water.
