More Listener Comments

Every week we hear from Minnesota school kids and regular listeners as they call or email us with their nature observations. Bobcat tracks,downy woodpeckers, a snowdrift covering a classroom window (which a hero-custodian cleared away),  a close study of layers of snow and much more are included in these phenology reports!  

What are  you noticing outside?  We would love to hear from you whether you are in a classroom or your living room!    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 someone who works with kids, we invite you to join the Phenology Network on KAXE/KBXE!  John Latimer has created a curriculum spanning the whole school year and will connect with you on how to get students observing nature and sending in their phenology reports. Send an email of interest along to 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.
