BIRD WATCHING ALONG THE MISSISSIPPI FLYWAY 1000s of birds migrate in the Spring and Fall along The Mississippi Flyway.  Alma, Wisconsin is a well known "birding hot spot" and migration stopover point.  Watch for birds while hiking, 

FISHING FROM THE FLOAT, A DOCK OR A BOAT  So much water, so many opportunities to satisfy the angler's need to fish.  Many Mississippi River backwater spots are available as well as the Great Alma Fishing Float.  You will need a Wisconsin fishing license.
HIKING A TRAIL  Mossy Hollow Trail or Buena Vista Trail are great City trails and offer great views and lots of bird watcing.  You won't be disappointed!
BACK ROAD DRIVING  Base your ride in Alma WI and venturing out into Buffalo County.  It's a real treat whether you are on a bike or in a car.
