This morning John Latimer asked DNR Bee Specialist Crystal Boyd "what is THE single easiest, most important thing that any of us could do to increase or help out our pollinators. Crystal said "Plant local native wildflowers....if you provide it they will come!"
She also told us about a great resource Bumble Bee Watch, where citizen scientists (that's you!) can post photos and get help with identification.
School's open and the student Phenology Reports are rolling in! What fun to hear phenology reports from area youth along with our listener correspondence this morning. Click on the links to hear what the kids and adults are noticing from Virginia to Long Prairie!
Tuesdays are dedicated to the natural world around us here at KAXE/KBXE. The Phenology Report provides a comprehensive look at what's what's changing color, flying, blooming, ripening and happening in nature here in northern Minnesota.
