Join Department of Natural Resources wildlife technicians Chris Cole and John Christian, at 7 p.m. on Feb. 5 at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center to learn more about the historic presence of trapping at Horicon Marsh and the management role it plays today.
The evening offers a glance into the past and will explain the historic impact trapping has had at Horicon Marsh and touch on the Horicon Marsh fur farm. Learn about some of the common furbearers that frequent the marsh, the types of traps used and the practical uses of trapping as a tool to manage wildlife populations.
"Even if you are not a trapper, this will be an interesting program to learn about the history of trapping at the marsh, the new, safer techniques that are being used and how trapping is an effective management tool at Horicon Marsh," said Liz Herzmann, Horicon wildlife educator.
