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

pheasants and sandhill cranes. Within the Vernon Marsh, the Vernon
Wildlife Area is available for hiking, hunting, bird watching, canoeing,
