ACCESS IS KEY

AT MARSHFIELD MEDICAL CENTER-BEAVER DAM When you think about what makes a health care organization successful, and whether it is effectively caring for the population it serves, perhaps one measure stands out above the rest.

of specialties and subspecialties available in the Dodge County region will expand, which will ensure better access to care for thousands of families.”

Access.

Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam has already improved access to Dermatology, Pulmonology and Urology by bringing in experienced, board-certified physicians to Beaver Dam on a full-time basis. Part-time Cardiology care is also available, with hopes for a full-time presence later in 2021.

Highly skilled clinicians and compassionate staff can provide world-class care to each patient that walks through their doors, but if there isn’t enough access for the communities they call home, that community will remain underserved. This is a growing concern around the country, particularly with independent and rural hospitals. This is why it made perfect sense for an independent hospital in Beaver Dam with generations of experience caring for the Dodge County region to integrate with a health system with an impressive track record of innovative rural health care delivery. In the short time since Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam joined the Marshfield Clinic Health System family in 2019, one of the chief promises made at the outset has been fulfilled. “We are committed to keeping care local for our communities because we know that so often access to care is a major challenge in rural areas,” said Dr. Susan Turney, Chief Executive Officer of Marshfield Clinic Health System said in 2019. “Through this integration, the number

The foundation of our health care system is primary care, and Marshfield Medical CenterBeaver Dam has consistently served Dodge County with advanced, highly skilled family medicine providers. In the next year, MMC-BD expects to enhance access even further in our communities served by clinics in Beaver Dam, Columbus, Horicon, Juneau and Waupun. While the COVID-19 pandemic affected health care delivery in many ways, one positive change as a result was the greater utilization of telehealth technologies that offer convenience to patients while providing greater access both to local providers and those normally outside their area. The BDCH Foundation helped Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam take this utilization a step further by awarding a significant $100,000 grant for the purchase of four telehealth mobile

carts that will be utilized in various rural locations and provide access to family medicine and specialized providers in offsite locations. While this has practical and convenient applications for virtual family medicine visits, orthopedics and general surgery follow-ups and dermatology consults, it also has the potential to serve a dire Dodge County need for behavioral health services. “The ability to bring these incredibly gifted specialists to Dodge County and improve access to this type of care is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job,” said Angelia Foster, Chief Administrative Officer of Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam. “Whether it was 100 years ago or throughout this difficult pandemic, we’ve proven through generations that we’ll always be here for the residents of Dodge County and beyond. And with Marshfield Clinic Health System supporting us, we will continue to see transformational rural health care for many more years to come.” More providers and more services also means more rewarding career opportunities that allow team members to grow along with the organization.

The newest non-motorized trail in Dodge County is the Gold Star Memorial Trail which currently links the City of Mayville to the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center via a separated path along Hwy 28 and Hwy TW.

Dodge County welcomes horseback riding on a separate 14-mile pathway along the Wild Goose State Trail between Highway 60 and Pautsch Road (about four miles north of Burnett). Trail terrain is generally easy riding, although special caution is necessary in areas with steep side slopes, wet crossings and near highways and roads. The trail surface is grass, dirt and wood chips and winds through wooded and open areas in the right-of-way of the Wild Goose Trail. Horses are not allowed on the limestone-surfaced trail except at designated horse trail crossings.

AUTO TOURS

The glaciers that once covered Dodge County have sculpted a landscape ideal for auto touring. Several scenic overlooks around the Horicon Marsh allow you to view the wetland’s wildlife. Follow the brown signs that mark the route of the Horicon Marsh Parkway, a 50-mile auto tour that encircles the Horicon Marsh and follows state and county highways through Burnett, Kekoskee, Horicon, Mayville and Waupun. The Parkway is easily accessible from U.S. Highway 151 or State Highway 41 by following State Highway 33 to access the south end of the Parkway or Highway 49 to access the north end of the Parkway.

Snowmobile enthusiasts will find an interconnected system of more than 320 miles of groomed county snowmobile trails that traverse farm fields, woodlots, lowlands and the Wild Goose State Trail, with another 180 miles of unfunded “club-owned” trails available for use within the county. Trails provide access to trail systems in neighboring counties. The “club-owned” trails serve more of the local users often connecting the county trails and populated areas that provide food, service and overnight facilities. Visit us at dodgeparks.com or call 920-386-3705 (Status Line) for more information.

ATV Trails

Dodge County opens 20 miles of ATV trails from Dec. 1 Mar. 31. Riding is only permitted during that time when the county has officially declared the trail open. The ATV trail can be opened if there is sufficient ground freeze or snowbase to prevent damage to the trail surface. The trails are primarily located on the surfaced areas of Wild Goose State Trail and the designated ATV trail routes through Burnett and East Waupun. The ATV trail runs from the parking lot at Highway 60 north to Highway 49. Go to dodgeparks.com for trail openings.

Dodge County ATV Trail Wild Goose State Trail

WILD GOOSE STATE TRAIL

Wild Goose State Trail links the City of Juneau - "Gateway to the Wild Goose Trail" and the City of Fond du Lac. This 34 mile compacted limestone trail on an abandoned railroad grade traverses oak woodlots, fertile farm fields, prairie remnants and sparkling streams as it runs through the rural country sides of Dodge and Fond du Lac Counties and skirts the western edge of the internationally known Horicon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge. Wildlife, scenery and level surface provide safe, easy and enjoyable biking and hiking for all ages. Parking and trail access available at the southern trail head at Highway 60 and the northern trail head on Rolling Meadows Drive in Fond du Lac and numerous points between. County and private campgrounds located nearby. A separate horse trail tread runs from Highway 60. The trail can be opened for snowmobile and ATV use in winter.

The ROCK RIVER WATER TRAIL is proud to be a designated National Water Trail. The water trail meanders down a gentle gradient through beautiful rural and wilderness landscapes and urban riverfronts to safely carry the water traveler 320 miles from the headwaters above the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge in south central Wisconsin to the Mississippi River at the Quad Cities of Illinois and Iowa.

The BEAVER DAM RIVER is also great for recreational paddling. Cotton Mill Park to County Road J, is a section of the Beaver Dam River that begins as an exhilarating urban paddle before quieting down towards the outskirts of town amongst suburban development, then narrowing again and alternating between wooded corridors, farmland and finally to a wider, almost marshy stretch, before the take-out. Add in a quite handsome train bridge, some minor drops and riffles, and you have yourself a great trip if you can catch it at the right levels. A new kayak launch will be installed soon at Cotton Mill Park. Check out Beaver Paddlers on facebook for updates on river conditions and shuttle information.

!

The gentle current you’ll find on the ROCK AND CRAWFISH RIVERS make them ideal for paddling. One of the most popular launches is Harnischfeger Park on the Rock River. Canoe and kayak rentals are also available here. Paddlers can travel upstream for 17 miles to Hustisford or downstream 25 miles to Watertown.

The Wildlife Education Program focuses on the abundant wildlife resources of the marsh, their ecology and management. DNR educators rely on the diverse wildlife to develop a wide range of educational programs aimed at introducing and sharing our native wildlife with a broad audience. Horicon Marsh Education & Visitor Center serves as both a destination and gateway for visitors to Horicon Marsh as well as providing for year-round educational opportunities. More than 500,000 people visit Horicon Marsh annually to observe wildlife in a natural setting, creating a huge demand for interpretive services. The facility has an auditorium, two classrooms, the Flyway Gift Shop, public viewing area, wildlife displays, a Children’s Discovery Area and other building amenities. Visitors may borrow binoculars, field guides, educational backpacks and snowshoes at no cost when facility is open. Today, guests of Horicon Marsh’s “Explorium” can get a glimpse of life at Horicon Marsh thousands of years before European settlement and witness how the current wetland came to be. Videos and interactive displays greet guests at every turn, encouraging audiences of any age to learn more about the history and ecology of Horicon Marsh. A wooly mammoth replica that children are free to touch and climb represents wildlife that roamed the land during the Ice Age. Relics from the age of European settlement as well as modern hunting and trapping equipment illustrate the marsh’s popularity as a waterfowl hunting site. Games encourage visitors to learn about wildlife identification. An airboat simulator gives visitors a thrilling perspective on the management and conservation activities currently occurring on the marsh before heading out to enjoy it for themselves.

HORICON MARSH AREA EXPERIENCE IT

Get outdoors this year and experience the wildlife and many seasons of natural beauty at Horicon Marsh. The Horicon Marsh Parkway is a 50-mile auto tour route that follows state and county roadways around the marsh, passing through or near many local communities. There are also roads, hiking and biking trails throughout the property, and a canoe trail accessing the waters of the marsh.

Spring marks the return of mallard ducks,

coots, herons, egrets, sandhill cranes, purple martins, warblers, and numerous others. A “chorus” of frogs is sure to be heard throughout the marsh signaling that warmer weather is here. The Horicon Marsh Bird Festival is held annually in May and offers many opportunities to view and photograph spring migrants and resident wildlife.

Summer brings nesting season

and warmer weather for hiking and bicycling around the marsh to view an array of bird species with their young. American white pelicans nest abundantly on the marsh during the summer and may be seen feeding in large groups – “herding” fish into shallower water for easier dining. Several fishing piers are also available at the marsh and make great places to spend relaxing summer afternoons.

Fall is well known for the mass

migration of birds (and visitors!) to the marsh - Canada geese, as well as thousands of ducks of many different species – mallards, wood ducks, pintails, wigeon, redheads, bufflehead, and ruddy ducks; as well as impressive numbers of staging sandhill cranes. Opportunities also exist to view whooping cranes. Although closed for waterfowl hunting, the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge is open for deer and small game hunting seasons in the fall. However there is waterfowl hunting in the State Wildlife Area. Many educational programs and events are held marsh-wide throughout the season.

Winter is characterized as a frozen but

peaceful time on the marsh and is also a good season for wildlife viewing. Eagles, owls, several species of hawks, muskrats, foxes and other wildlife, or evidence of, such as tracks or feathers, may be sighted when the entire marsh is open to snowshoeing, hiking, and cross country skiing (Dec. - Mar.). Snowy owls are a notable species to watch for during the winter months.

METALCRAFT OF MAYVILLE EMPLOYEES MAKE THE DIFFERENCE Metalcraft of Mayville can trace its heritage to Peerless Traveling Goods Company, which was founded in Mayville in 1920. Peerless would manufacture various types of luggage products until the company ceased operations and was sold in 1958. In 1926, J. Dorst Company, a die sinking business, also began in Mayville. The company eventually converted into a metal stamping operation which produced parts for the automotive industry, as well as for Peerless Traveling Goods. The company name was changed to Dorst Metalcraft in the 1940’s and the business and again changed its focus to sheet metal fabricating; producing items to customer contract specifications. Dorst Metalcraft purchased the assets of Peerless Traveling Goods in 1958. Dorst Metalcraft was purchased Edwin A. “Ned” Gallun Jr., in 1973 and within a year, a new

63.000 square-foot plant was built on 30 acres of land at the corner of Stag Road and Hwy V. In 1974, the company officially changed its name to Metalcraft of Mayville Inc. and a section of County Highway V was renamed Metalcraft Drive. The company employed approximately 100 men and women by the end of the decade. Metalcraft of Mayville is set on 45 acres; the facility includes corporate offices and over 400,000 square feet of manufacturing space and 20 loading decks. We serve the agricultural, forestry, construction, industrial, military and mining markets. Metalcrafts’ vast expansion over the decades has expanded with locations in Mayville, West Bend, Beaver Dam, New Berlin and Watertown. Assemblies, currently manufactured at Metalcraft of Mayville highlight the direction the company has taken. To support these assemblies; we carry equipment for laser cutting, forming, machining, painting,

wielding and robotic welding. We process a wide range of materials, including carbon, steel, aluminum and stainless steel. Ned Gallun passed away in 2016, but his legacy of building a world-class company continues under the leadership of his son, Martin and the Gallun family. Metalcraft departments include; administration and accounting, sales and marketing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and materials. “Employees Make the Difference,” remains the company’s foundation belief.
