John Latimer

Every Tuesday on the Phenology program, our resident Phenologist John Latimer digs deep into the natural world around us.  In our Phenology Talkback segment, he gathers and shares comments and questions about nature from listeners.  In his Phenology Show segment, he reflects on his own journals and observations about developments in nature.  Tune in to our morning show every Tuesday for these features as well as meaningful conversations with other visitors in our studio who have a whole lot of knowledge to share about weather, climate and the subtle changes happening in the environment.

Each week, our resident Phenologist John Latimer puts together a report of the subtle and not so subtle phenological changes he's noticed in the past week and he shares those observations with our listeners.  This week's report includes a full report of what's blooming right now and how this year's blooms are measuring up to the yearly average bloom dates.  Rabbits foot clover, common evening primrose, sawtooth sunflower, and early goldenrod are just a sampling of what John discusses today!

We focus on the out-of-doors every Tuesday with our Phenology Show.  In our talkback segment we share comments related to the outdoors that have come our way over the course of the week.

We care deeply about the natural world around us here at KAXE-KBXE.  Every week we learn from our listeners about what they are noticing outside and every week our resident phenologist John Latimer assesses today's climate happenings with those in his 30+ years phenological data collection. 

Today, in our talkback segment, John Latimer takes listeners on a tour of the KAXE-KBXE Season Watch page on Facebook to share what some of our Seasonwatchers are dialoguing about.
