Thank you to all who attend our Annual Meeting on December 5th!  A special thank you to Natanya and Adam from the DNR.  They shared some of the amazing work being done in the Vernon Marsh.  They are greatly appreciated!  We also wanted to announce the results of our annual Board of Directors election.  Congratulations to Tom Sherman and Lynn Preston who were both elected to a new three year term on the Board.  Thank you Tom and Lynn and congratulations!

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.
