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.  Birds are returning, eaglets are hatching, leaves are popping and the world is greening up.  Spring is in full swing in northern Minnesota!

Every Tuesday we hear from students across Minnesota as they send in their weekly Phenology Reports.  This week we heard from the kids at North Shore Community School in Duluth, MN and the 5th graders at Roosevelt Elementary in Viriginia, MN.    Wolf tracks,  mice and frigid temps, oh my!

    Tuesdays are special around Northern Community Radio.   During our morning show which is a mix of national news and local features, Tuesdays our local features are dedicated to nature.  Resident phenologist John Latimer shares phenology reports from classrooms across the listening area and shares his own insights as well.  This week we heard from a fantastic group of kiddos as you'll learn by listening to their reports.  Thanks to the kids and the adults who contacted us with their observations!
