We care deeply about the natural world around us here at KAXE-KBXE.  Each week our resident phenologist John Latimer provides a complete Phenology Report giving listeners a comprehensive look at what's  happening in nature here in northern Minnesota. And, a lot is happening out in nature in northern Minnesota right now!

Every Tuesday we hear from students and listeners as they send in weekly Phenology observations.  Our last classroom reports for the year are included in these talkbacks. We've absolutely loved hearing from our student reporters this year and we'll miss them dearly this summer.  Hopefully they will continue to be observant and send their observations along to us via email!

Every Tuesday we hear from students and listeners as they send in weekly Phenology observations.   As spring makes way for summer, there has been tons of activity out in the woods, on the lakes and along paths  and roadways we humans ride, walk and run on.  This week we heard from students in 9 different schools as well as other non-school related youth observations and reports from adults as well!  We're so grateful for everyone who shared what they've been noticing and we are so proud of all the kids who contribute to
