BROWN COUNTY (WLUK) -- Brown County officials are calling the move exciting.

Three Brown County Departments are preparing to relocate operations after the UW-Extension building in Bellevue was sold to the Green Bay Area Public School District.

Agriculture, UW-Discovery Farms and Land and Water Conservation offices will temporarily move to the Environmental Sciences Building, ES307, on the UW-Green Bay campus.

Horticulture, 4H Youth Development, Family Living Program, FoodWise Program and Community Gardens will temporarily move to the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay.

“It’s an exciting opportunity for the County and for Land and Water Conservation,” says Mike Mushinski, Brown County Conservationist. “Our department will get the chance to work with the university in the research and implementation of water quality improvement practices.”

The UW-Extension offices will be closed on April 27 and April 28 for the move and offices relocating to the Neville Public Museum will reopen May 1, while offices moving to UW-Green Bay will reopen May 5.

The Parks Department's main office is also moving. It will move to the L.H. Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve in Suamico. It will be closed May 2 and May 3 and reopen May 4.

The temporary move comes as the construction on the new STEM Innovation Center continues.

The office phone number remains the same (920) 391-4610. Hours of operation will be from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
