The geologic features of the area, created by our last ice age, were instrumental in providing resources for wildlife and humans alike. The human history of the Horicon Marsh is rich with culture and story. The wildlife present today at the Horicon Marsh is the result of geologic and human activities, including modern-day wildlife management.
