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.
In addition to the Phenology Report, this week John pays his respects to longtime listener and lover of the outdoors Ken Perry of Brainerd. Ken was a phenologist at heart and contributed regularly to our show. Our thoughts are with Ken's family.
Tuesday mornings at 7:50 forest ecologist Harry Hutchins joins staff phenologist John Latimer for "A Talk On The Wild Side". This week Harry took the opportunity to wish Aldo Leopold a happy birthday and also remind us to find our mentors. When you meet people who know more than you, spend time with them. Amazing things can happen. Harry talks here about the people he met early in his career that lead him to what he has spent his life studying. Who are your mentors? What are the moments in your life that lead you to where you are? Email us!
