Tuesdays are special at Northern Community Radio and when school is in session, we are even more jazzed than normal because in addition to hearing from our listeners, young phenologists across Minnesota call in their classroom phenology reports.  This week we heard from students in Hill City, Shevlin and Northfield.  We also heard from Rich Libby who contacted John about a study he recenty read regarding the effects of artificial light on insects.  Listen to to the links for the full experience!

Tuesdays are special at Northern Community Radio and when school is in session, we are even more jazzed than normal because in addition to hearing from our listeners, young phenologists across Minnesota call in their classroom phenology reports.  Kids reported on chickadees eating out of their hands, feeding squirrels, sightings of bobcats, mink and fishers, and one kid even asked his mom to take out a six point buck with her car.  She wasn't interested.  Listen to to the links for the full experience!

Tuesdays are special at Northern Community Radio and when school is in session, we are even more jazzed than normal because in addition to hearing from our listeners, young phenologists across Minnesota call in their classroom phenology reports.  We heard from three classrooms and several listeners this week.  Reports include frozen waters, voles, red wing blackbirds, bird food and more.

Taking time to contemplate what is happening in nature is one of the many aspects of Northern Community Radio that sets us apart from any other radio station.  Each day we bring you a phenology note where our resident phenologist John Latimer shares a note from his journals of more than 35 years of climate and nature data collection.  Each Tuesday we dig even deeper with the full Phenology Report.

Tuesdays are special at Northern Community Radio and when school is in session, we are even more jazzed than normal because young phenologists across Minnesota call in their classroom phenology reports.  This week we heard about turkeys and chipmunks and snake, oh my!  

Tyler in Ely had an incredible quote in addition to his report that he saw a European bellflower growing up thru a sidewalk crack.  In response to his sighting he stated, "Nature seems to always win in the end."  Sage words from one or our insightful, young phenologists!
