gidakiimanaaniwigamigseasonal camp will host the manoomin project, a study of the wild rice lakes on the Fond du Lac reservation. The Fond du Lac Natural Resources Department is working with the University of Minnesota's Liminological Research Center and it LacCore facility and the Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College to take sediment cores from 6 wild rice lakes over a period of five years. Cores are being studies to reconstruct how the lakes changed over time. Information found will be shared between the Reservation, University, and the College to better understand the history and future of wild rice.

log on to the manoomin blog for up to date information and discussion about the project from students and staff
