Email News Alerts

Last week, about a dozen workers from the USDA Service Center in Detroit Lakes -- which includes the local offices of the Farm Service Agency, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Rural Development and the Becker County Soil and Water Conservation District -- volunteered their time to help flood relief efforts in the Fargo-Moorhead area.


Many of them brought family members along as well, said Barb Fyffe, who made the trip to Moorhead twice, on Tuesday and Friday of last week.
