Each week, our resident Phenologist John Latimer reports on the subtle and not so subtle phenological changes he's noticed in the past week.  This week John looks closely at changes in foliage, tree health, blooming asters, goldrenrods and much more. 

As always, we love to hear what our listeners are noticing out in nature.  Give us a call at 218.999.9876 and let us know what is happening around your place.  You can also send an email directly to John.  Either way, we want to hear from you!

In our phenology talkback segment we share comments related to the outdoors that have come our way over the course of the week.   It's a fantastic time of the year to be outside relishing in all the glory nature has to offer. Egrets, hummingbirds, warblers, and advice on hazelnut picking are all included in this week's talkback segment.

Meadow Kaufield of Grand Rapids floated by the KAXE studios just in time to share her breakfast with John and Heidi on The Friday Morning Show. Before she left she had some homemade oatmeal with old-fashioned oats heated up and served with salted butter, maple syrup and a little milk. Besides breakfast, Meadow described her upcoming Extreme Huntress competition.

To traverse a bog, one needs some background information. Puposky poet, Cate Belleveau fills us in.

We continued our MN Governor Candidate conversations today - this time DFLer Lori Swanson - she is currently MN's Attorney General and she's chosed District 8 Congressman Rick Nolan as her running mate.
