Every week we hear from Minnesota school kids and regular listeners as they call or email us with their nature observations. The phenological data we gathered this week indicates that weatherwise, as Dylan says, "the times they are a'changin." Spring is upon us and these reports prove it! Robins, sap, squirrels, caterpillars, goldeneye, a duck head, skunks, bees buzzing and even a grasshopper are all evidence of the changing season. Yay!
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!
