Phenology Talkbacks: 1/19/21

Jan 19, 2021

Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate. Phenology Talkbacks are an opportunity for us to hear what you are noticing outside.  This week, phenologist John Latimer heard from two classrooms who sent in stellar reports! 

Kids at Pike Lake Elementary report deer tracks, ice skating and an experiment to determine what nuts squirrels like best!  

 North Shore Community School kids report a pine marten, a flock of ducks and and they inspire John to discuss the uniqueness of the willow bud. 

  If you are a teacher who would like more information about the Phenology Curriculum, email John, we'd love to have your students involved! 

Don't hesitate to send along your observations. We'd love to hear what you are noticing in your neck of the woods!  If you love Phenology, check out our KAXE-KBXE Season Watch page on Facebook.
