Horicon Marsh Wisconsin
marsh located in northern Dodge and southern Fond du Lac counties of Wisconsin. It is the site of both a national and a state wildlife refuge. The extinct glacial lake is the largest freshwater cattail marsh in the United States.
Horicon Marsh was created by the Green Bay lobe of the Wisconsin glaciation during the Pleistocene era. The glacier, during its advance created many drumlins
(a type of knoll) in the region, many of which have become the islands
of Horicon Marsh. The marsh and surrounding Dodge County have the
highest concentration of drumlins in the world.
