A Seasonal Guide to Wildlife Encounters in Natural Places

Have you ever heard a wolf howl in Wisconsin’s Northwoods, watched thousands of ancient sturgeon roil the waters of one of the largest inland lakes in the United States, or tagged a monarch butterfly before it begins one of the world’s great migrations to its winter habitat in Mexico? Travel Wild Wisconsin is your seasonal guide to genuine wildlife encounters with an amazing array of birds, mammals, fish, and insects in Wisconsin’s most beautiful natural settings: state wildlife areas, rivers, lakes, flowages, and preserves as well as national wildlife refuges and forests.

Wisconsin native Candice Gaukel Andrews shares natural history and lore, accounts of her own experiences with Wisconsin wildlife, and insights from biologists, environmental educators, and citizen scientists, so that you can seek a wildlife encounter of your own.

So come spy on the spring courtship dance of the greater prairie chicken, search for elusive and elegant white-tailed deer in summer, touch a tiny saw-whet owl on one special day in autumn, and thrill to the sound of thousands of tundra swans as they migrate through the Mississippi Flyway just before the first snow falls. Make this the year you Travel Wild Wisconsin.

The author Candice Gaukel Andrews is the author of Great Wisconsin Winter Weekends, The Minnesota Almanac, Beyond the Trees: Stories of Wisconsin Forests, and An Adventurous Nature: Tales from Natural Habitat Adventures. A resident of south-central Wisconsin, she is a columnist for several international environmental organizations and nature-travel and eco-tour providers.

260 pages, Paperback. 6" x 9". 42 black and white photos, 7 maps. Published May 2013.
