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 in which our resident phenologist John Latimer shares an observation from his journals of more than 35 years of climate and nature data collection.  Each Tuesday we dig even deeper with the weekly Phenology Report.  Today, John talked of signs of spring.  Yep... we're already seeing signs of spring! What are you seeing outside?

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.  We heard from three classrooms and several listeners this week.  Reports include frozen waters, voles, red wing blackbirds, bird food and more.
