Food, income, and recreation are all reasons behind the harvest of wild plants and animals in the Chippewa Valley today, and harvesting activities have marked the time of year for generations. For example, maple syrup is collected in early spring, berries in summer, white-tailed deer in autumn, and ice fishing in winter. Explore past and present traditions of wild harvest across cultures, generations, and genders.

The Harvesting Traditions Exhibition was supported in part by the Xcel Energy Foundation, and a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funding from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
