The office is in the Wells Fargo building on East Broadway, and will house economic development, sales and marketing staff.

The U.S. Forest Service Dakota Prairie Grasslands Supervisor's Office is moving to a temporary, temporary location. The DPG moved to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service building on Miriam Avenue in Bismarck, after their lease expired in their old location.

But this is also just a temporary move.

They will move to another temporary location later this summer and hope to have a permanent location within a year. About eight people work at the office. Forest Service maps and recreation passes are available for purchase at the temporary location.

Office hours for the Dakota Prairie Grasslands are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
