Richland County Added To Gypsy Moth Quarantine Zone

Two counties have been added to Wisconsin’s gypsy moth quarantine zone, posing movement restrictions and inspection requirements on plant and wood products exported from the area. The state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection announced Tuesday that Eau Claire and Richland Counties are the latest to join the quarantine zone in an attempt to slow the invasive insect’s westward expansion in the U.S. Plant nurseries, Christmas tree growers and lumber mills will be most impacted by the growing quarantine zone, according to DATCP, but individuals and families are also asked to take precautions when traveling for camping trips. Patio furniture, campers, boat trailers, firewood and other items stored outdoors should be inspected for gypsy moths before traveling west.

Richland Campus Sells Residence Hall

In February 2021, the Richland County Campus Foundation placed UW- Platteville Richland’s single residence hall up for sale. This was a difficult decision for them. With a lack of in-person students and their need to keep the lights on for those who had stayed, the RCCF had spent up to a third of their available funds in 2020 on this building alone during the COVID-19 pandemic, and these costs were continuing to pile on. With the idea that the funds could be better used elsewhere, the RCCF explored other avenues before the building was ultimately put up for sale. In a fortunate turn of events, the property has already found itself with new prospective owners. Panorama Estates LLC, a property management firm based in Richland Center, had the winning bid for the property.
