Each week we hear from regular listeners and classrooms around the region who are paying attention to the natural world around them. Resident phenologist John Latimer gathers the messages and shares them during the Phenology Show every Tuesday morning.   This week we were so thrilled to hear from so many classrooms taking part in the Phenology Curriculum!  We heard from Student Phenologists in Shevlin, Kelliher, Cohasset, Hill City, North Shore, Northfield and Marcell!
