Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate. Each week, listeners send along phenological observations and questions to Northern Community Radio resident phenologist John Latimer closely assesses the subtle changes happening outside and gives a full, official phenology report.
This week John’s report is full of signs of changing seasons, bird migrations, flocks of flickers,, sunflowers blooming, leaves dropping, and much more!
As always, we really would love to know what you are seeing at your place or out on your adventures outdoors. Email your questions and observations or leave a message on our talkback line at 218-999-9876.
School is starting up… We love hearing from schoolkids who are out exploring the natural world around them! John has created a Phenology Curriculum for teachers. If you are a teacher interested in incorporating phenology into your classroom, email John!
