Phenology Talkbacks: August 4, 2020

Aug 4, 2020

Talkback is your opportunity to communicate with us!

Tuesday’s’ Talkback Segment is always dedicated to the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate – Phenology.  Listeners send in reports of what they’ve noticed outside in the past week. 

Maybe you've got an observation you'd like to share. Maybe it's just a question you'd like to ask or a comment you'd like to make. We don't care. We just like to hear from you. So get in touch with us. You can send an email directly to our resident phenologist John Latimer or send it to our general comment email box.  You could send a letter to an actual mail box as well.  That address is 260 NE 2nd Street, Grand Rapids, MN 55744. And of course, you can always call our talkback line and leave it in your own words. 218-999-9876.

This week we heard from Axel, Ruth and Pearl Newstock.  The kids report major happenings– explosions in beaver ponds, a trip to the big bog and fledging of phoebes that led to swabbing the poop deck. We’re looking forward to hearing more from them thru the fall!

Andrew called in a report of otters on Little Trout Lake and a flock of gulls on Big Trout Lake. 

Bob and Cheryl in Cherry reported a bear pulling down old feeders and cleaning them out. 

And mystery contributor 9094 sent in photographs of plums and apples. 

Connect with us!  We want to know what you are noticing outside!
