A 10-year project to restore wild rice beds all along the west shore of Green Bay continued this fall as state and federal employees joined forces with a lot of volunteers from several directions to seed roughly 1,300 pounds of wild rice along the bay.
“It’s been a unique partnership to work on this project. I don’t think any of us could have done this alone. We’re planting quite a few sites along the west shore,” said Dave Halfmann, Wisconsin DNR wildlife biologist and property manager for the Green Bay West Shores Wildlife Area near Peshtigo.
