Wild Rice Season 2014
Another wild rice growing season is underway. With a long winter, cool spring, and high water levels, it will be interesting to see how things pan out. We endeavor our best to get out to as many wild rice waters as we can to provide information on how certain bodies of water are doing (as far as rice producion goes). For the latest updates on conditions, please click on the link below.

WILD RICE RESOURCE GUIDE - NEW VERSION
The 1854 Treaty Authority has developed a Wild Rice Resource Guide showing locations where wild rice is found in the 1854 Ceded Territory. Conditions vary and need to be checked each year, but the guide lists 99 lakes or rivers classified as having a good or fair potemtial to contain enough wild rice for harvest.
A list of all wild rice waters in the 1854 Ceded Territory is also included along with other information about wild rice biology, harvesting, and regulations. The guide can be accessed by clicking the link below.
