Every Tuesday we hear from students and listeners as they send in weekly Phenology observations. In this wide ranging Phenology Talkbacks segment, we hear from students in Ely, Virginia, Two Harbors, Bemidji, and Northfield. John also reports on several emails he received this week from observant adults. Folks are seeing a burst of new activity in nature these days including sandhill cranes, bats, wild turkeys, swans and sap taps. Click on the link for a full report!
If you are a teacher wanting to get involved in our Phenology program, send John Latimer an email and he'll get you set in the right direction. We love hearing from students and knowing they are passionate about the natural world we live in.
Are you someone who pays attention to the natural world around you? Send along your observations and questions about what you are noticing outside. We'd love to hear from you. Email or give us a jingle and leave a message at 218.999.9876. Join our KAXE-KBXE Season Watch Page on Facebook to connect with others in northern Minnesota!
Phenology Talkbacks are made possible by the members of Northern Community Radio and a grant from the U of MN NE Regional Sustainable Development Partnership.
