Tuesdays are special at Northern Community Radio and when school is in session, we are even more jazzed than normal because young phenologists across Minnesota call in their classroom phenology reports.
This week we heard from kids in Ely, Virginia, Effie, Kelliher, Blackberry, Two Harbors, Hill City and Northfield. The kids were incredibly observant this week! They noted bears, loons, turkey vultures, milkweed seeds, wolves and snowflakes among many other interesting sightings.
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!
Listen to KAXE/KBXE Northern Community Radio every Tuesday morning for the full phenology show.
