Tuesdays are special around here!  Every Tuesdya during the morning show, we bring listeners The Phenology Show, it's a special time when we focus on and celebrate the amazing natural world around us!  Listeners send in phone messages and emails with observations and questions while our resident phenologist does a deep dive comparing what he's noticed in the week to the same dates in his journals from years gone by.  This week we heard from the adorable Ruth, Axel and Pearl Newstock as they called in a report of a family hike. We also heard from Chris on Hill Lake and Harvey Tjader in the Bemidji area.  In John's official Phenology Report, he discusses butterflies and blooms and more!
