Every week, our resident Phenologist John Latimer gathers his phenological data and reports his findings in the Tuesday morning Phenology Report.  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!

Every week we hear from regular listeners and Minnesota school kids as they call or email us with their nature observations. We heard from several listeners and 8 schools this week!

Each week, our resident Phenologist John Latimer compiles a report of the subtle and not so subtle phenological changes he's noticed in the past week. Pine needles falling, changes in the color of fireweed, a decrease in the number of wasps and hornets around hummingbird feeders, hummingbird numbers dwindling, blooming heart-leaved asters, Jerusalem artichokes and swamp milkweed are just a few topics John discusses in this week's report.

Year-round, we hear from listeners who call or email their observations of the natural world to us and we love hearing from everyone who contributes!  During the school year, we have the sweet treat of hearing from classrooms and kids around the listening area as they report what they've been noticing.  This week, in addition to recieving emails and phone calls from listeners,  we heard from five schools and one homeschooler!  Acorns on the ground, a monarch release, ripe tomatoes, hawks, bears, geese, golf ball sized hail and bees are just a sampling of the reported observations that came our way in the past 7 days!

Each week, our resident Phenologist John Latimer compiles his report of the subtle and not so subtle phenological changes he's noticed in the past week and he shares those observations with our listeners. This week, John discusses hummingbirds, apples, indian pipe, blooming goldenrods, falling acorns and many other signs that a new season is on the horizon.
