Cherokee Marsh - North Unit

6098 N. Sherman Ave., Madison, WI 53704
OVERVIEW

Strategically located at the head of Madison's lakes, Cherokee Marsh acts as a living sponge. It filters upland runoff, using excess fertilizer to grow marsh plants, and slowly releasing cleaner water to the lakes below. Cherokee Marsh is the largest wetlands in Dane County. It is used by thousands of students each year for environmental education. The North Unit has 2.6 miles of trails along with a boardwalk and two observation decks. Visit the Friends of Cherokee Marsh website for more events and volunteer projects.
