If you haven't been out in the forest yet, you need to get out there NOW!" - John Latimer

Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate.    Each week, our resident phenologist John Latimer closely assesses the subtle and not so subtle phenological changes happening in nature and compares them to his meticulous, decades of data.  On Tuesdays during the Phenology Show, we hear his findings in the official Phenology Report. In this combined report, hear what folks are discussing on our KAXE-KBXE Season Watch Facebook Page and hear John's full report! 

KAXE-KBXE Northern Community Radio is listener funded.  If you appreciate that programming like this exists in the world, consider making a contribution  to the station to ensure we can continue this service for years to come!

Check out our Season Watch page on Facebook for more pics, videos and conversation about what's happening outside!
