Here are some of the wild ricing steps taught during the camp. Harvest: By using a push pole and knockers, harvesters poled through rice beds, being careful to not rip out the rice plants or knock stems to the point of breaking them. Drying: Rice from the lake is laid out on tarps in the sun to dry the rice and pick out any stems or other debris.
