Wild rice, or manoomin, grows in lakes and streams of northern Wisconsin.

Northeastern Wisconsin students are learning about growing and raising wild rice by learning from the the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Manoomin (Wild Rice) team, according to an article from the university.

A Green Bay East High School agriculture class learned to care for the growing rice plants in their greenhouse. 

Meanwhile, the university’s wild rice team welcomed Howard-Suamico School District third graders to learn about wild rice at a nature preserve. They learned from a citizen of the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin about wild rice origin stories, tribal restoration efforts and the cultural significance of wild rice.
