Spring is in the air and the phenological signs are all around us! We heard from kids and grown ups all across the listening area this week!  From as far north as Baudette and as far south as Crosby-Ironton, our listeners are observing the subtle changes in nature and we are loving it!  Thanks to everyone who contributed to the talkback show this week.

Anne McKeig

Area Voices tells the arts, culture and history stories of northern Minnesota.  In this segment of Area Voices, we learn about a native northern Minnesotan who is making history.  Anne McKeig is a descendent of the White Earth Nation.

Tracey Srock

The snow is melting! All of this exposed ground inspires visions of gardens in the minds of many northern Minnesotans.   Tracey Srock of Deerwood is a master gardener who doesn't let the season of winter interfere with her garden crop production.   She's been growing lettuce all winter, indoors!

Leaning Cedars Studios

Stained glass artists Kellie and Jordan Lindquist envisioned a life nestled in the woods and infused with creativity.   After living on the west coast for several years, they returned to northern  Minnesota  to  make their dream a reality. Their home near Pennington, MN is also home to Leaning Cedars Studios where they focus their energy on stained glass art along with other forms of artistic expression.

Phenology is the rhythmic, biological nature of events as they relate to climate.  Our resident phenologist John Latimer has been keeping phenology notes for 33 years, documenting the subtle and not so subtle changes he notices in the natural world.  Every week, he gives our listeners a full report of what he's noticing as well as what others have reported.  This week's report is full of hints of spring!  Horned larks, red fox, bluebirds and even the very early wound of a wood frog all make it into this week's report.
