We heard from a lot of keen young phenologists this week!  Reports include sights and sounds of a toad, wood frogs, frosty mornings, and currant leaves, loons, a lesson in trumpeter swans and even a boat race in Virginia that John Latimer was involved in.   These kids are engaged with their outdoors.  Bravo! Minnesota kids are so cool!
