There is no better place to enjoy and explore the great outdoors than Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin according to the locals there. From wooded bluffs to the waters of the mighty Mississippi, the area offers endless opportunities to enjoy nature at its best during any season.
The Mississippi River serves as a migration corridor not only for waterfowl, but also for numerous other birds such as raptors, shorebirds, and neotropical migratory songbirds.
Warbler migration peaks about May 4-8. So the first or second weekend of May should be the time to come to the area to see these colorful birds. The Sturgeon Slough Walking Trail, is accessed from the rest stop located on Highway 18 between Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin and Marquette, Iowa.
