In our phenology talkback segment, we share comments related to the outdoors that have come our way over the course of the week. This week, we heard from Dick in Grand Rapids who reported seeing otters eating something in the lake, our first school report arrived from the Circle of Life School in White Earth, Ian from Minneapolis submitted a mushroom report, and David Scoggins reported many observations including dying ferns, sumac turning red, and the sighting of numerous fall warblers. What signs of fall have you noticed?
Send along your observations and questions. We'd love to hear from you. 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 work with kids, you are invited to join the Phenology Network on KAXE/KBXE! We've 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 and we'll get you set up!
