Vernon Marsh 
Vernon Marsh is a unique ecosystem in Waukesha County consisting of approximately 5,000 acres of marshland, grassland, flowage, rivers, oak savanna, and lowland forest.  It supports abundant wildlife including songbirds, waterfowl, frogs, turtles, furbearers, deer, turkey, pheasants and sandhill cranes.  Within the Vernon Marsh, the Vernon Wildlife Area is available for hiking, hunting, bird watching, canoeing, trapping and fishing.


 A River Runs Through It

The Fox River runs through Vernon Marsh, making the 
marsh a vital connection between the Fox River, Mukwonago River, Pebble Creek, and Mill Creek watersheds.
