Each week John and Heidi pull up a chair to one of our member’s kitchen tables and get to know them a little bit better. This week’s callers Sarah and Josiah were hanging out in the deer stand but wouldn’t admit having cereal and yogurt for breakfast.

Every week we hear from Minnesota school kids as they call or email us with their nature observations. This week we were excited to receive our first report from Bemidji's new Gene Dillon Elementary school! We are over the moon with excitement about the number of classrooms engaged in our phenology program and very much look forward to next week's reports! 


Mark Jacobs turned his love of the woods into a career in forestry, during which he applied innovative ways to look at and manage two hundred thousand acres of public forest lands in Aitkin County.  He is especially proud of his leadership in managing mixed hardwood forests.  Mark just retired after 39 years as a forester and land commissioner in Aitkin County.  In this conversation with John Latimer and Harry Hutchins, Mark talks about some of the innovative managemnt practices he adopted that are now widely used by private land owners and professional foresters.

Let's Visit is Northern Community Radio way of sharing various communities and places in our broadcast region with our listeners.  This past month, Let's Visit focused on Remer, MN.  Remer is more than a palindrome.  It's a quaint, small town with a penchant for Bigfoot that serves as many students in the school district as there is population in the community itself.  Northland Community Schools serves children from Outing, Boy River, Longville, and Federal Dam.

Indivisible Bemidji

Redistricting, reapportionment, and gerrymandering are some of the topics for a community forum being held next Wednesday October 3rd in Bemidji at the American Indian Resource Center at Bemidji State University. The forum is called Fair Districts = Fair Elections.
