Wild Rice Seeding


Many of the state and federally owned wetlands in Minnesota get used every year by game and non-game wildlife species for nesting, staging, or inhabiting year around. The proposed project sites do not currently have wild rice available as a food source. Native Minnesota wild rice would be a beneficial food source at these sites.
