Over the past five years students from the South St. Louis county area, including South Ridge students and teachers, have worked with the University of Minnesota/LacCore and NCED as well as the Fond du Lac Reservation’s Natural Resources to better understand the past, present and future for wild rice growth on the reservation lakes. Students have worked together in small multi-aged groups with mentors, scientists and teachers to core and analyze the cores to see the history of the land. They spent time¬†with elders to better understand how oral history and scientific data connect. It is our hope that students have found their voice in their community as far as how the land and water are cared for and used.
