Phenology is the biological nature of events as they relate to nature.  These days the activity in the natural world is profound... sometimes subtle and  requiring a concentrated effort to witness, other times taking over our senses.

Our resident phenologist John Latimer takes us through the many signs that spring is upon us in this edition of the Phenology Show.   If you love nature and take notice of the subtle changes happening around you, please share your observations with us!  We love to hear what is going on in our listeners' necks of the woods.

Every Tuesday John Latimer gathers all the phenology comments and questions sent along by listeners and area school children and we share their observations and queries with the world.  This week was a busy one around the listening area.  We heard from more schools than we have in a long time and there is so much spring action going on out in mother nature that the reports were full of fantastic findings!
