Extension Taylor County Office During COVID-19 Pandemic

For health information, visit the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) COVID-19/Coronavirus website and/or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19/Coronavirus website.

Until further notice, Extension Educators throughout the state will be working from home, i.e. telecommuting. They will be checking emails and voicemail but may not be able to get back to you immediately.

All in-person workshops and other programs are cancelled or postponed until further notice. Where appropriate, we may try to provide online programming.

For now, we will try to keep normal office hours, but only support staff will be available. The office may be closed periodically and resources may be limited. Please call the office to verify if it is open (715-748-3327 x 3) before coming to the office.

We will post updates when we receive them, and we will be periodically posting information or links to information that we think may be helpful.

University of Wisconsin – Madison Division of Extension has a web page featuring many resources in multiple program areas: Health & Wellness, Business, Families, Agriculture, Personal Finances, and Youth.

The Extension Learning Store has publications on many topics including agriculture, gardening, home and family, natural resources, communities, 4-H and youth. Most can be viewed and read online or downloaded and printed at no charge.

Please follow health guidelines, including physical distancing, to protect yourself, your family and friends, and our community, but stay in touch through phone calls, social media, video, letters, and waves from a distance.

Stay well!



  1. Shanna,
    All state Extension and many DNR employees are now working from home and their resources may be limited and their response may be delayed. I am listing two possible resources. If these don’t help, please email me at cathleen.mauer@wisc.edu.

    You may find some answers to your questions in this publication on the Extension Learning Store website: https://learningstore.extension.wisc.edu/products/managing-wisconsin-fish-ponds-p592?_pos=1&_sid=d334f7391&_ss=r. Click “View Publication” and look at chapter 11.

    DNR also may have some information. There is a link to contacts for aquatic plant management on this webpage: https://dnr.wi.gov/lakes/plants/forms/
    On that same page there is also a link to an application form for aquatic plant management in private ponds. Scroll down to the list of Application Forms and Resources.

  2. Whom do I speak with in regards to decreasing vegetation in a private pond? Would you please forward them my email.
