Due to COVID-19 Prevention Measures, and to protect the health and well-being of the community, our guests, and the UW Madison Extension Marathon County Educators and staff, we are currently available during normal business hours by phone and email to address your needs. Should you feel the need to see someone in person, please call 715-261-1230 to schedule an appointment. Please refer to our Staff Directory for specific contact information. In person contact will be very limited at this time due to recent State of Wisconsin “Safer at Home” orders.
