Talkback is one way we engage with listeners.  Phenology talkbacks become a conversation that paints a picture of what's happening out in nature at a given moment in the phenological cycle.   Each week, we receive reports, comments, and questions from listeners and classrooms across Minnesota.   Since school went online in March, we noticed the kids and classrooms engaging in phenology even more than before. We are so happy to provide an avenue for kids to get jazzed about nature!  We're going to miss their classroom reports this summer.  

In these talkbacks we hear from Chris at Hill Lake and we get one last classroom report from North Shore Community school as Ms. Jackson reflects on the positive influence of honoring nature.

We'd love to hear from you!  Let us know what you are seeing and what questions you have!  You can send a written email or record a voice memo on your phone send that along.  You can also call our talkback line at 218-999-9876 and leave a message there as well.  

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.
