SOUTH SALEM- Coyotes: Behavior, Ecology, and Coexistence @ The Wolf Conservation Center

Join the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) for a special program about our local cousin to the wolf – the Eastern Coyote. Learn more about their biology and behavior and ways to reduce or prevent problems from occurring between people, pets and coyotes. After the talk, guests will visit Ambassador wolves Alawa, Nikai and Zephyr and will potentially behold the WCC’s critically endangered red wolves.

 

SATURDAY,  March 16, 2019
11 am – 12:30 pm

 

Fees:  $14 – Adults / $11 – Children (under 12)

Coyotes are one of the most successful carnivores in North America because of their
ability to cope, if not thrive, in the face of human-caused changes to the environment. In recent years, their numbers have grown so much that they now live close to people. Dana Goin, WCC’s Wildlife Outreach Specialist, will discuss coyote behavior and ecology in suburban landscapes where people and coyotes coexist.
