Phenology Students

Last week was crazy cold for this time of year.  We heard from two classrooms full of bright, observant students and also from a crew of listeners across northern Minnesota.  Thanks to all of you for sharing your observations!  

If you are a teacher or know a teacher who would love to get his/her students involved in our phenology program, get in touch with us!  Our phenologist John Latimer loves to visit classrooms and get kids engaged in noticing the natural world around them.  You can email John at

    Tuesdays are special around Northern Community Radio.  Tuesday is the day we gather the phenology reports that have been called, emailed, or sent in by our listeners and share them with the world.  We love hearing from the students and people in our region and we love learning about what you've been noticing in terms of the seasonal changes taking place in nature.   What have you seen lately?  Share your observations with us and others by leaving a message on our talkback line at 218-999-9876.  You can also send an email to

    Tuesday morning is the time we reflect on the changes taking place in the natural world around us.  Students and regular people just like you take the time to share their observations with us and we share them with our listeners.  What are you noticing around your house, along the roadsides, on the lake or in the woods?  We'd love to hear about it!  You can call and leave a message on our TalkBack line 218-999-9876, email our resident Phenologist John Latimer at or leave a general email message at

    Tuesday mornings are special around Northern Community Radio... Tuesdays, we take a closer look at the natural world we live in.   John Latimer has spent 33 documenting the phenological changes he notices each day.  Tuesday mornings we hear John's weekly report.  We also hear from students and regular people across our listening area as they share the subtle and not so subtle seasonal changes they are witnessing.  We would love to hear what you are noticing!

Tuesday mornings are special around here. We hear phenology from students and listeners from all across northern MN.  We also get the special treat of the weekly phenology report from our favorite nature reporter John Latimer.  For 33 years John Latimer has been documenting the subtle and not so subtle changes in the environment on The Phenology Show.
