Anishinaabe people have traditionally harvested plants for food, ceremony, medicines, dyes, tools, construction, and basketry. KBIC's Integrated Resource Management Plan (IRMP) sets forth goals of protecting and expanding stands of culturally significant native plants (i.e. wild rice) and identifying and controlling invasive species on the Reservation that threaten the existence of our native plants. Native plant propagation for various restoration projects start in KBIC's solar-powered geodesic dome green house. The green house was built in 2010 as part of The Zaagkii Project, a cooperative pollinator project with The US Forest Service and The Cedar Tree Institute.
