Every week we hear from Minnesota school kids and regular listeners as they call or email us with nature observations. Spring has sprung in northern Minnesota and boy are we stoked about that! This week's phenological observations include trumpeter swans, ring-billed gulls, owls, eagles, bones, skulls, dead skunks, robins, tulips, and wolves crossing roads. Click on the phenology reports to hear all about the wide array of plant and animal activity happening outside!
What are you noticing outside? We would love to hear from you whether you are in a classroom or your living room! Don't hesitate to email or give us a jingle and leave a message at 218.999.9876. You might also consider joining our KAXE-KBXE Season Watch Page on Facebook to connect with other nature-conscious folks in northern Minnesota!
Also, don't hesitate to check out John's Phenology Observation Worksheet for April! Have fun looking for or listening for your first loon, spring peepers, wood frogs and much more! At the very least, get outside and enjoy the seasonal changes happening!
If you are a teacher or someone who works with kids, we invite you to join the Phenology Network on KAXE/KBXE! John Latimer has created a curriculum spanning the whole school year and will connect with you on how to get students observing nature and sending in their phenology reports. Send an email of interest along to get you set up!
