Every week we hear from regular listeners and Minnesota school kids as they call or email us with their nature observations. This week, because of the Monday holiday, we only had two school reports. We did hear from a number of other listeners, tho. Topics in this week's talkbacks include invasive cattails, ravens, rabbits eating their own poop, the sound of the first "phoebe" song and a follow up on last week's discussion about sections of the Mississippi river becoming frozen.
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.
