Cherokee Marsh - South Unit

802 Wheeler Road
Madison, WI 53704

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 School Road/South Unit has 3.1 miles of trails for skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer.
