Under the leadership of Project Leader Kurt Eversman, Valley Cityâ€™s National Fish Hatchery on River Road is working to become a destination along the Sheyenne River.
Activities already going strong on the fish hatchery grounds include bird watching, a fishing pond signed for people 16 or under, but â€śanybody can come and fish,â€ť and gravel roads throughout the property.
Said Eversman, â€śquite a few people walk the perimeters of roadsâ€ťlooking for wildlife, fish, and the river.

Harvey said his father spent a short time working with apples in Yakima, Wash., then returned to farm in North Dakota.
