Phenology Show, July 31, 2018

Every Tuesday on the Phenology program, our resident Phenologist John Latimer digs deep into the natural world around us.  In our Phenology Talkback segment, he gathers and shares comments and questions about nature from listeners.  In his Phenology Show segment, he reflects on his own journals and observations about developments in nature.  Tune in to our morning show every Tuesday for these features as well as meaningful conversations with other visitors in our studio who have a whole lot of knowledge to share about weather, climate and the subtle changes happening in the environment.

As always, we love to hear what our listeners are noticing outside, too.  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!

If you are a teacher or work with kids, you are invited to join the Phenology Network on KAXE/KBXE!  We've created a curriculum spanning the whole school year and will connect with you on to get your students observing nature and sending in their phenology reports. Send an email of interest along and we'll get you set up!

Phenology Talkbacks are made possible by the members of Northern Community Radio and a grant from the U of MN NE Regional Sustainable Development Partnership.

As a mail carrier in rural Grand Rapids, Minn., for 35 years, John Latimer put his own stamp on a career that delivered more than letters. Indeed, while driving the hundred-mile round-trip daily route, he passed the time by observing and recording seasonal changes in nature, learning everything he could about the area’s weather, plants and animals, and becoming the go-to guy who could answer customers’ questions about what they were seeing in the environment.
