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!

One thing that connects us all and gives us all kinds of good feels is the beauty of nature right outside.  What a wonderful treat to continue receiving school phenology reports even though kids aren't attending school as they were just one week ago.  We are so grateful to get these reports from the kids! A ray of sunshine on a cloudy day, that is for sure.

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 when our resident phenologist John Latimer shares a note from his more than 35 years of personal journals documenting climate and nature data collection.  Each Tuesday he digs even deeper with the weekly Phenology Report.
