Every Tuesday we combine all the phenology notes people have phoned, emailed, texted or sent in via mail-carrier and present them to you during the "talkback" section of the Tuesday Phenology show.  This week was a busy one out in nature... maple trees being buzzed by bees, cicadas calling, turtles laying eggs, dragonflies, butterflies, spiders, and more were all reported to us!  Click on the link for the full report.

Phenology is the biological nature of events as they relate to climate.   Today's report includes all kinds of action.  Turtles are on the move and we hope people are watching out for them along the highways.  Trees and shrubs are flowering like crazy and the wildflowers are creating quite a gorgeous spectacle!  To many people's chagrin, the horseflies, deerflies and mosquitos are back in full force.  It really is a phenomenal time to live in northern Minnesota!  Click on the link for the full report that includes a sweet lesson in baby turtles.

 Every Tuesday we hear from people around the listening region and discover what they've noticed out in nature.  Today marks the last of the student reports for the schoolyear and we are already looking forward to hearing from the kids next fall.   If you have a classroom or know of a teacher who would like to incorporate our phenology program into the school schedule, send an email and we'll get you hooked up!

Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate.  This week we've prepared a full report including a leafing and flowering trees and plant update - pincherries, red oak, choke cherries, false lily of the valley and black ash are just a few of the varieties delved into in this report.
