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!

If you love this stuff, please consider becoming a member of KAXE/KBXE Northern Community Radio.  We couldn't bring you this kind of programming without the support from our community.  Also, be sure to check out our KAXE-KBXE Season Watch Page on Facebook.  If you dig phenology, you'll dig the Season Watch page!

Listen to KAXE/KBXE Northern Community Radio every Tuesday morning for the full phenology show.

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.
