Classroom Phenology Reports and Questions for John!

Mar 4, 2020

Tuesdays are special at Northern Community Radio.  It's our day to really focus on what's going on in terms of climate and nature.   During our talkback segment on the morning show, we share observations from listeners and young phenologists across Minnesota... This week we heard from a handful of schools and John recieved a bevy of questions from second graders in Barnum.  Animals are on the move, trees are changing, spring is coming! 

Check out each report to find out what's happening across Minnesota!  You can send along a note to report what you've observed outside by emailing us or leaving a voice message at 218-999-9876!  Also, don't forget to check out the KAXE-KBXE Season Watch Facebook page!   

The North Shore Community School reports skunks, saw whet owls, coyotes and an attempt to feed an owl a beefstick! 

Hill City students report turkeys, bald eagles and a band of coyotes! 

Pike Lake students report snow depths, birds, squirrels and make inferences based on their data! 

Weaver Lake students have been paying close attention to changes happening with the tree branches in their classroom and those in the wild! 

2nd graders at Barnum School sent John a list of questions including how and why skunks spray, what it's like being on the radio,  how deer have babies and much, much more... John tackles those burning questions right here!
