Northwoods Phenologists conference: Feb. 2010, Wolf Ridge ELC

I just received the following announcement from John Latimer of KAXE and the author of our monthly phenology posts.  This conference looks like an excellent opportunity to visit a world-class environmental learning center, contribute to a growing phenologists’ network, and learn from some of the region’s leading phenologists.  Check it out!
