Phenology Talkbacks: 3/23/21

Mar 23, 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.  

Hill City students report a dead racoon, a skunk, trumpeter swans and more! 

Kids at Pike Lake Elementary are finishing up their sugarbush season and sneaking some sap sips as they do it! 

Near Duluth, kids heard an owl and saw caterpillars and a red fox.

Students in Northfield noted the first vultures of the season and the first flies! 

Heidi  noted a welcome night sound and Carl from Bemidji tweeted a phenology report involving a seemingly lost eelpout in this report... 

Don't hesitate to send along your observations! We'd love to hear from you. 

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