Birding in Lake Mills

Published On: Sunday, June 8, 2014By Categories: Blog, Special FeaturesTags: , , ,
The Zeloski Marsh Wildlife Area is a relatively new wildlife management property located just south west of Lake Mills and promises to be the next “great’ birding spot in south east Wisconsin. When fully restored this property will be over 1,500 acres of wetland and grassland and will attract over 200 species of birds.

Lake Mills Zeloski Marsh Wildlife Area is comprised of a diverse variety of habitat types currently covering approximately 3,300 acres. The habitat types include open water marsh, large areas of wet prairie, lowland hardwoods with tamarack, and some Oak Savannah Uplands.

To find a parking area to use as a starting point, travel to the Southwest of Lake Mills on Hwy A. Go North on Hwy S approximately 1 mile and turn west on Alley Road. Continue West 1 mile to the parking lot on the North side of Alley Road. The Wildlife Area is also accessible by the Glacial Drumlin Bike Trail. Another option is a second parking lot area off of London Road to the south of the Wildlife Area. Free Birding Checklists are available in the parking lots of The Wildlife Area. Checklists are also available online at www.lakemills.org. Enjoy a relaxing walk in wonderful birding paradise.

Katie was the Executive Director of the Lake Mills Main Street Program from 2011 to 2019 and was the Secretary for the Jefferson County Tourism Council. In 2019, she retired to explore a new fashion degree and travel throughout the world. Katie was also a writer and contributed a great deal of copy for our website and printed guide. She was a great asset to our organization and we'll miss her!
