Phenology Talkback is your opportunity to  connect with us about what you are noticing out in nature.  Maybe you've got a question, a comment you'd like to share or an observation you had that will add to the phenological story of the week, whatever it is, we want to know about it.  Each Tuesday morning we gather the talkback recordings, notes and emails from our listeners and share them with the world.   We'd love to hear from you!  Send an email or leave us a phone message at 218.999.9876.

  Every Tuesday our own John Latimer reports on the subtle changes happening in nature in his Phenology Report.  Spring is here and northern Minnesota is very much alive with exciting new action that only happens in the spring.  Trees are leafing out, new insects are buzzing and crawling around, birds have returned and all kinds of babies are being born.  It's a good time in the north woods!

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!

Phenology is the biological nature of events as they relate to climate. Every Tuesday, as our resident phenologist, John Latimer said this morning, "we introduce you to the world we live in."  During the "talkback" section of our show, listeners get to be part of telling nature's story...We gather phenology related listener comments, questions and observations and share them.
