biboon 2010

By , January 23, 2010

During the gidakiimanaaniwigamig biboon January 2010 camp manoomin Lake Team #1 went out onto Perch Lake and collected a number of cores. Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College students Professors, University of Minnesota Scientists, as well as gidakiimanaaniwigamig students and teachers worked together for the better part of the morning.

After noon a core was cut open for all those attending camp to examine more closely. Two students are incorporating what they are doing with the manoomin project  to their Science Fair project. (One of the students found whole pine cones!)


Lake Team #1 students and gidakiimanaaniwigamig staff/teachers plan to travel down to the LaCore labs to further examine the cores scientifically. Information will be shared with the Fond du Lac Natural Resources Dept and the LaCore Lab.

Lake Team spent Saturday, February 28th at the UM LacCore labs working with the cores collected from Perch Lake during the month of January 2010. Students were trained to use many of the instruments and equipment allowing them to cut open the cores, measure density, observe and identify plant materials found in the core.

It was estimated that the small pine cones that Morgan found during camp in January were 9,000-10,000 years old.
