U.S. Fish & Wildlife Midwest Regional Office moves to new location
May 26, 2011
The Midwest regional office will be relocated to the Norman Pointe II Office Building
The Midwest Region, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Regional Office will change locations over the Memorial Day 2011 weekend. Our last day in our current location will be Friday, May 27. Beginning on Tuesday, May 31, the Service's Midwest regional office will be relocated to the Norman Point II Office Building, at the following address:
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
5600 American Blvd. West, Suite 990
Bloomington, MN 55437-1458
Since 1969, the Service's Midwest regional office has been housed within the Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building, located at 1 Federal Drive, Fort Snelling, Minnesota. The Service and other tenants will be vacating the building so that it can undergo significant structural and energy upgrades. Planned construction and renovation to the Whipple Building, which is being funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, is expected to take approximately three years to complete.
Although our physical location will be changing, it should be emphasized that our current phone numbers, email addresses, regional website (http://www.fws.gov/midwest), social networking sites, and other means of contacting us will not be affected by the move.
The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. We are both a leader and trusted partner in fish and wildlife conservation, known for our scientific excellence, stewardship of lands and natural resources, dedicated professionals and commitment to public service.
