Year-round, we hear from listeners who call or email their observations of the natural world to us and we love hearing from everyone who contributes! During the school year, we have the sweet treat of hearing from classrooms and kids around the listening area as they report what they've been noticing. This week, in addition to recieving emails and phone calls from listeners, we heard from five schools and one homeschooler! Acorns on the ground, a monarch release, ripe tomatoes, hawks, bears, geese, golf ball sized hail and bees are just a sampling of the reported observations that came our way in the past 7 days!
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!
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!
Phenology Talkbacks are made possible by the members of Northern Community Radio and a grant from the U of MN NE Regional Sustainable Development Partnership.
