Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate. Phenology Talkbacks are an opportunity for us to hear what you are noticing outside.  We heard some incredible reports from students this week... Enjoy! 

Kids in Cohasset report ice melt, open river water and much more! 

  Students in the Proctor School District report wolves and pine martens from their three school trail cams! 

Pike Lake Elementary

  Students inthe Duluth area report a coyote den, bird songs and tapping their trees! 

North Shore Community School

  Northfield kids saw squirrels eating sap and have nearly filled their sap collection containers... they also heard a spring peeper! 

Prairie Creek Community School

    Don't hesitate to send along your observations. We'd love to hear about what you are seeing in your neck of the woods!  If you are a teacher who would like more information about the Phenology Curriculum, email John, we'd love to have your students involved! 

 If you love Phenology, check out our KAXE-KBXE Season Watch page on Facebook.

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.
