The McGregor District office of the Upper Mississippi National Wildlife and Fish Refuge is moving from its current location along Highway 18, between Marquette and McGregor, to Prairie du Chien, effective March 30.
“The office we have now, there are safety concerns from mud and rocks,” said McGregor District Manager Rich King, noting that some falling rocks have damaged vehicles. “There are also mold and moisture concerns.”
King said the Refuge has sought a new home for the district office for some time.
“We’ve been looking for land next to the flood plain, but not in the flood plain,” he said.
