Phenology Talkbacks & Student Reports: 10/20/20

Oct 21, 2020

Phenology Talkbacks are an opportunity for our community to connect with the station thru nature… Each week listeners and students report observations and present questions to our resident phenologist John Latimer. 

What are you noticing? Send your observations via email or voicemail at 218-999-9876.  You could even record a voice memo on your phone and send your thought that way!

If you are a teacher interested in getting your class on the phenology trail, John has created a whole phenology curriculum!  Send him an email for more information!

This week we heard about last monarch sightings, tents collapsing,  a massive ginko leaf drop and much more! 

Kids in Kelliher reported average temperatures, snowfall, fox, and wondered about butterflies in winter. 

Students at Prairie Creek School in Northfield reported so much snow their classroom tent collapsed!

Listeners Jeff and Jake reached out with reports of probably the last monarch and yellow rumped warbler they will see for the year.
