Phenology

Tuesday Mornings

Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate.  John Latimer shares his phenology notes on what he has been observing this week.

This month on our CONSERVATION CONVERSATION we talked again with the folks from Northern Waters Land Trust.  They are a non-profit conservation organization working to protect water quality and preserve environmentally sensitive lands and water resources.

This week we heard from our friends who are back to their cabin in northern MN from Tennessee - siblings Ruth, Axel and Pearl... and John read and responded to your listener letters. 

Send John an email or join us on Season Watch on Facebook. 

Students are off school now, we hope you'll send in your nature sightings.

Minnesota Seasons

 On The Tuesday Morning Show this week we talked about turtles in Minnesota right now - how we should and how we can help 

Here’s a few things to keep in mind on How to help turtles cross the road:
  • Don't put yourself or others in danger. Pull off the road and turn on your hazard lights to alert other drivers to slow down. Check your surroundings and be careful of traffic.

If you haven't been out in the forest yet, you need to get out there NOW!" - John Latimer

Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate.    Each week, our resident phenologist John Latimer closely assesses the subtle and not so subtle phenological changes happening in nature and compares them to his meticulous, decades of data.  On Tuesdays during the Phenology Show, we hear his findings in the official Phenology Report. 

Bob Conzemius joins Heidi Holtan and John Latimer on the Tuesday Morning Show for the Big Weather Picture.  They discuss the recent hot and very dry weather we have been experiencing in northern Minnesota.  Bob gives some predictions for this area during the summer and talks about what is happening with the weather in other areas of the United States. 

Listen here for an explanation on our hot, dry weather.

Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate. Tuesday mornings we hear from folks young and old as they share their observations of nature during our Phenology Talkback segment. This morning we honored contributors Sarah Grell and Harry Hutchins and we hear some student reports that would make them both smile.  

We were devastated to learn of the passing of Sarah Grell.  What a light.  In this segment we honor Sarah and Harry Hutchins, and find some hope in the red osier dogwood.

Hill City 2nd graders make us smile.
