Hiking by candlelight, a roaring bonfire, roasted marshmallows and warm refreshments await everyone at the 9th annual Horicon Marsh Candlelight Hike.
The event is sponsored and hosted by the Friends of Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center and Wisconsin DNR.
The Northern Cross Science Foundation astronomers will be on site to help you view the night sky through telescopes or to talk about the stars if it is cloudy. Members of the Horicon Marsh Bird Club will be on the trail conducting short owl talks and calling for owls. You can also learn about Wisconsin's mammals on the short "Family Loop" trail! Warm beverages and light snacks will be available inside the center as well as a bake sale. Roast your own marshmallows or grab a hot chocolate outside in the picnic shelter.
Friends of Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center will line the trails with candle-powered luminaries to welcome and guide hikers. Volunteers will be on hand for assistance and information. There are two trails available. One trail is 1.5 miles and another "Family Loop" is only .36 miles.
