Tuesdays are special at Northern Community Radio because we focus on climate and nature. When school is in session, we are even more jazzed than normal because in addition to hearing reports from our listeners as they sent in their observations of natural world, we also young phenologists across Minnesota when call in their classroom phenology reports. This week we heard from kids in Grand Rapids, Hill City, Two Harbors, Northfield, and Weaver Lake. We also heard from Chris who we interviewed on the Phenology Show last week and from Marvin, John's neighbor who had an interesting story about a rabbit and a grouse. Who do you think would win in a stand off between a rabbit and a grouse? You'll have to listen to the report to find out!
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.
