We care deeply about the natural world around us here at KAXE-KBXE.  Each week our resident phenologist John Latimer's Phenology Report provides a comprehensive look at what's  happening in nature here in northern Minnesota.  Nature is action packed these days and it's only going to get more busy as temps continue to rise!  Listen to the link to hear everything John's noticed in the past week from woodpeckers drumming to barred owls communicating, buds breaking on the the trembling aspen and so much more.

Every Tuesday, we take a close look at the natural world during our Phenology Show!  In this segment we assess what is blooming,  moving, flying, changing and a whole bunch of other interesting things going on out in nature!  Listen closely and you can discover what prunescence is!  What have you been noticing?  We'd love to hear about it.

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!
