Vernon Marsh, Waukesha County, WI | est. 2008 ~ Education | Preservation | Restoration
The Vernon Marsh is being used as a garbage dump.
Each Spring the Friends of Vernon Marsh conducts a marsh clean-up.
Last year's clean-up resulted in the collection of over 10 large
garbage bags of debris, old tires, even a broken up TV set. The year
before someone dumped old roof shingles in two large separate piles in
parking areas within the Marsh. The shingles were loose and heavy and
intermixed with rusty nails. It took hours of hard careful work to
pick up these shingles by hand.
The Vernon Marsh belongs to
all of us. When someone dumps their garbage in the Marsh it spoils the
beauty of the area for all who visit it. It diminishes the experience
for hikers, hunters, bird watchers, dog walkers...for all or us who
love the outdoors.
Watch our Events Calendar page for dates and times for the Marsh Clean Up.
Meet at the Frog Alley parking Lot. Wear old clothes, sturdy shoes,
and work gloves. Hope you can join us! Help protect the Vernon Marsh
and all the wildlife that lives there. Get involved, get into the
