Phenology Talkbacks: Student Reports and Listener Comments 11/10/20

Nov 11, 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!

Hill City Kids report golden eye and blue billed ducks, wolf spiders and a majority of leaf loss. 


Students at Pike Lake report an orb weaver, a tree growing out of a stump and even a weasel inside a house! 

North Shore Community School students reported on the blue moon, average temperatures, a maimed moth and even silk lines from ballooning spiders!

Students at Prairie Creek Community School report fresh mole tracks and dandelions!

We also heard from listeners this week who have noticed a wide array of birds! The grosbeaks are making a comeback! Yay!
