We hear from school kids across our listening area every week when they submit their phenology observations and we look forward to airing their findings every Tuesday.  The school year is winding down and we're already lamenting the upcoming loss of our weekly classroom reports.   The students have done a stellar 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.

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.

As always, we love to hear what our listeners are noticing out in nature.  Give us a call at 218.999.9876 and let us know what is happening around your place.  You can also send an email directly to John.  Either way, we want to hear from you and find out what you are discovering!

Spring is such a perfect time to be a phenologist! Every week we hear from Minnesota student phenologists as they share what they've been observing outside. Bears, osprey, and snakes, oh my! So many awesome observations this week!

“In diligently recording our sightings, I realize that I often forget to pause and reflect on the beauty of this peculiar hobby.  The natural world is vastly more wild and strange and wonderful than my best phenological notes will ever capture. And there is some irony that in observing the natural biological rhythms of nature, my own secret destiny is staring right back at me. How fortunate we are to share in the ancient conversation together, thru your phenology report.  Bring on the warblers.” 

– Ian, Minneapolis-based phenologist

Every week we hear from Minnesota school kids as they share what they've been observing outside. Things are hopping out in nature these days, and we don't just mean the frogs.  Loons, killdeer, robins, trumpeter swans, snake shed, goldeneye and yellowbellied sapsuckers are just a few of what students and listeners reported seeing.  Click the links to hear the full reports!

Every week we hear from Minnesota school kids as they share what they've been observing outside.  This week there were some incredible phenology notes gathered by the kids - porcupines, great blue herons,increased daylight, snowdays, slushy lakes, turkeys and syrup are just the tip of the iceberg.  We even heard from students at the University of MN St. Paul campus!  Click on the reports to hear the full reports from our intrepid reporters, a song from U of M students and much more!
