Saukville Field Station

 Research programs, UWM classes, and public programs – located in Saukville and includes the Cedarburg Bog

Unsurpassed natural beauty. A living science laboratory.

Not every university can give its students and the public access to the types of outdoor learning facilities like we can at UWM. We are fortunate to have the Saukville Field Station and other properties to showcase the best that Wisconsin has to offer.

The main facility is located about 25 miles north of UWM’s main Milwaukee campus and includes 320 acres of undisturbed, high-quality natural communities for teaching and research related to animal life, plant species, biodiversity, climate, and more.

The Saukville Field Station is adjacent to the 2,200 acre Cedarburg Bog State Natural Area (SNA) – the largest, least-disturbed bog and the most biologically diverse wetland in southern Wisconsin.

In addition to the Field Station, we manage nine outlying properties.
