One thing that connects us all and gives us all kinds of good feels is the beauty of nature right outside.  What a wonderful treat to continue receiving school phenology reports even though kids aren't attending school as they were just one week ago.  We are so grateful to get these reports from the kids! A ray of sunshine on a cloudy day, that is for sure.  

This week, in addition to the kids' reports, we received emails from several listeners.  The data seems to prove that spring is happening.  YAY!   Click on the reports below and discover what people have been seeing outside!   If you have a report, leave a message at 218-999-9876 or send an email to John.  We want to hear from you! 

 Kelliher students submitted reports of dealing with fishguts, ice cracking and the idea that it's time for spring to get here, already! 

 

August reports a northern harrier and many other signs of spring in the Shevlin area!
