Tuesdays are special on Northern Community Radio.  It's the day we look closely at Phenology.  John Latimer has been keeping phenological notes for more than 30 years.   Comparing nature notes of years past with current happenings creates the weekly Phenology Report.

Every Tuesday morning on Northern Community Radio we focus on the natural world during the Phenology Show.   Resident phenologist John Latimer guides us through the subtle changes in  nature we are experiencing in the KAXE/KBXE listening area. During the talkback  portion of the show,  we share the comments, questions and observations sent in by listeners. What have you noticed outside?  We'd love to hear about it.

Phenology is the biological nature of events as they relate to climate.   Today's report includes all kinds of action.  Turtles are on the move and we hope people are watching out for them along the highways.  Trees and shrubs are flowering like crazy and the wildflowers are creating quite a gorgeous spectacle!  To many people's chagrin, the horseflies, deerflies and mosquitos are back in full force.  It really is a phenomenal time to live in northern Minnesota!  Click on the link for the full report that includes a sweet lesson in baby turtles.

 Every Tuesday we hear from people around the listening region and discover what they've noticed out in nature.  Today marks the last of the student reports for the schoolyear and we are already looking forward to hearing from the kids next fall.   If you have a classroom or know of a teacher who would like to incorporate our phenology program into the school schedule, send an email and we'll get you hooked up!

Each week we hear from young phenology reporters across northern Minnesota (and a few not-so-young phenologists, too).  John Latimer puts those reports together and share them with out listeners every Tuesday during the morning show and it's one of our favorite things.
