Taking time to contemplate what is happening in nature is one of the many aspects of Northern Community Radio that sets us apart from any other radio station. Each day we bring you a phenology note where our resident phenologist John Latimer shares a note from his journals of more than 35 years of climate and nature data collection. Each Tuesday we dig even deeper with the full Phenology Report. If you appreciate this programming, become a member today or increase the contribution amount of your current membership to this one of a kind, rural, hip, environemntally conscious radio station!
This week, John considers leaf color of a variety of trees and reminds us to watch for juncos, fox sparrows and snow buntings among other things!
School is on! We are excited to start hearing from our intrepid student reporters in classrooms around northern Minnesota! If you are a teacher or work with kids, you are invited to join the Phenology Network on KAXE/KBXE! John has created a curriculum spanning the whole school year and will connect with you on how to get your students observing nature and sending in their phenology reports. Send an email of interest along to get set up!
As always, we love to hear what our listeners are noticing out in nature. Give us a call at 218.999.9876 and let us know what is happening around your place. You can also send an email directly to John. Either way, we want to hear from you!
If you love this stuff, please consider becoming a member of KAXE/KBXE Northern Community Radio. We couldn't bring you this kind of programming without the financial support from our community. Also, be sure to check out our KAXE-KBXE Season Watch Page on Facebook. If you dig phenology, you'll dig the Season Watch page!
