September 16, 2023 Hike the Berm and Winery Meet-Up at Pieper Porch Winery

12:30 pm to Walk the Berm and then Meet Up afterwards at Pieper Porch Winery from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm for wine and snacks. Come for one event or join us for both! What a great way to celebrate the coming of Fall in Wisconsin together!


Berm Walk: Meet at 12:30 pm in the upper Frog Alley Rd Observation Area (end of Frog Alley Rd. off Hwy 83).  Following introductions we'll casually walk to the Mukwonago end of the Berm and then return. If you'd like you can continue your walk further along the RR trail and then return.  


Winery Meet Up:  We'll reassemble at approximately 2:00 pm until 5:00 pm at the gazebo at Pieper Porch Winery (S67W28435 River Road, Waukesha) for conversation, surprises, and fun!  Wine will be on your own, however Friends of Vernon Marsh will provide light snacks. Soda and water is also available for purchase at the winery. Stay for the entire time or just drop in for a while.


Hope to see you!

It's hard to believe that some still use the Vernon Marsh as their personal garbage dump (see below), but they do!  And, if we don't clean it up, experience dictates it will get worse.  So, won't you please help Keep the Vernon Marsh Beautiful?
