In our phenology talkback segment we share comments related to the outdoors that have come our way over the course of the week.   It's a fantastic time of the year to be outside relishing in all the glory nature has to offer. Flying ants, milk weed pods and so much more is included in this week's talkback segment.

Are you someone who is jazzed about the natural world around you? Send along your observations and questions about what you are seeing outside.  We'd love to hear from you.   Don't hesitate to email or give us a jingle and leave a message at 218.999.9876.  You might also consider joining our KAXE-KBXE Season Watch Page on Facebook to connect with other nature-conscious folks in northern Minnesota! 

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.
