The trees are blooming and the landscape is finally peppered with color as plants and wildlife emerge from dormancy. On this Central Standard, we explore the nature around us as we transition into Spring.&nbsp;</span></p><p></p><p> Tue, 09 Apr 2013 14:39:34 +0000 Suzanne Hogan, Matthew Long-Middleton & Claire McInerny 34778 at http://kcur.org Nature In The City: KC In Spring Nature In The City: The Dead Of Winter http://kcur.org/post/nature-city-dead-winter <p>It may be the dead of winter, but there is still plenty of nature to see in the Kansas City area. &nbsp;<strong style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-size: 15px; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Georgia, Times, serif; line-height: 22px;">Larry Rizzo</strong><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Georgia, Times, serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 22px;">, natural history biologist, and&nbsp;</span><strong style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-size: 15px; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Georgia, Times, serif; line-height: 22px;">Joe Werner</strong><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Georgia, Times, serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 22px;">, biologist and urban ecologist wi</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">ll cover the best places to observe eagles and nesting Great Horned Owls, and explain what's going on pre-February with groundhogs.

But one has to wonder, how did all that <em>dry </em>heat this summer affect our natural world as we fall into the Fall season? And how is the lingering drought impacting local wildlife?</p><p>On this Wednesday's <a href="http://kcur.org/programs/centralstandard"><em>Central Standard</em></a>, we take an early Autumn look at <strong>Nature in the City</strong> with <strong>Larry Rizzo</strong>, natural history biologist, and <strong>Joe Werner</strong>, biologist and urban ecologist.
