From seed handlers, to boat operators and ice breakers, to rice harvesters and transporters to the planning team, many people contributed their time and effort to a successful Green Bay wild rice seeding, even in the face of treacherous Wisconsin weather conditions bringing snow, wind, ice and sub-freezing temperatures throughout the week.
To show just how successful this wild rice seeding was, we need to get analytical for a moment. In total, 65 people participated in rice seeding throughout the week, including 20 middle-schoolers. Forty-eight bags of wild rice, weighing more than one ton, were transported and seeded and 40 acres of wetlands were seeded at seven different sites on the Green Bay west shore.
