Marsh Haven Nature Center is located at the north end of the famous Horicon Marsh, just 3.5 miles east of Waupun, Wisconsin on Highway 49. Their non-profit, all-volunteer, community supported center features displays and exhibits that help depict the history and wildlife of Horicon Marsh.
In addition, they also have an Art Gallery where a diverse collection of wildlife art, and beautiful wildlife photography is on display; a classroom/meeting room with full kitchen access for your teaching and meetings needs; outdoor amphitheater and indoor theater with large television and screen; bunkhouse/lodge for overnight adventures, and the only observation tower, campfire and camping accommodations on the Horicon Marsh.
Wildlife feeding stations are located on either side of the Gift Shop, and visitors often see a variety of birds up close. In 20 years of operation, volunteers have met visitors from all fifty states in the USA, and about 90 foreign nations! Free maps are provided to help visitors enjoy Horicon Marsh.
Marsh Haven Nature Center offers unique environmental education programs with a focus on experiential, hands-on learning. We base our programming on the philosophy of place-based learning and the resources of Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods and The Nature Principle; Jon Young, tracker and founder of the Wilderness Awareness School; and principles from the Art of Mentoring and Coyote Teaching.
