Title: Natural Wild Rice in Minnesota
Description: A Wild Rice Study document submitted to the Minnesota Legislature by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (February 15, 2008). To study natural wild rice in Minnesota, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MNDNR) established a Technical Team of wild rice experts from State, Tribal, and Federal governments, as well as academia and the private sector. The MNDNR also established a Partnership Team representing major stakeholders. This document is a report of the study that includes: (1) the current location and estimated acreage and area of natural stands; (2) potential threats to natural stands, including, but not limited to, development pressure, water levels, pollution, invasive species, and genetically engineered strains; and (3) recommendations to the house and senate committees with jurisdiction over natural resources on protecting and increasing natural wild rice stands in the state.

Title: Carbon Cycle in a Field Setting
Description: This exercise allows students to understand the pathway of carbon from the atmosphere to plants to the roots to the soil and back to the atmosphere. This is a set of activities which will help students model the components of the carbon cycle and measure carbon as it moves through different parts this system. The activities are broken down into two main categories: atmosphere to plant–with a focus on photosynthesis and carbon sequestration in roots; and soil to atmosphere–with a focus on soil microbial activity that decomposes plant material and returns carbon to the atmosphere.
