Phenology is the biological nature of events as they relate to climate.  Every Tuesday morning, our resident Phenologist John Latimer gathers his phenological data and reports his findings in the weekly Phenology Report. In this week's report, turtle talk, what's blooming, and much more!

We hear from listeners and school kids across northern Minnesota every week when they submit their phenology observations. The school year is done and we're already lamenting the upcoming loss of our weekly classroom reports.   The students have done such an incredible job of documenting and reporting their nature observations this year.  We've loved all of it!  Hopefully some of the kids will continue to connect with us over the summer. 


Kelly Chandler from Itasca County Health and Lori Rothstein from University of MN Extension Service/College of Pharmacy were in today to talk about communicating and getting involved in making change in our communities when it comes to substance abuse.  They told us about recovery capitals.
