Wildlife Speaker Series: Living with Coyotes

Thursday, February 6, 2020, 7:00 pm
Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West
Speaker: Dr. Stan Gehrt, Ohio State University

Coyotes have adapted to life in cities across North America. In many cases, their human neighbours may not even realize they’re around until they notice tracks in the snow, or hear their song at night. Some residents may be concerned about coyotes living among us, which is why it’s important to better understand how we can coexist safely together.

Dr. Stan Gehrt has been studying coyotes in the greater Chicago metropolitan area since 2000, which has led to many interesting discoveries about how coyotes interact with humans and other animals in different settings.  The event will also feature displays by local organizations. 

Admission is free and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. No registration required. For more information, contact:

  1. Great idea. I have coyotes patrolling my backyard in Crystal Beach. Can’t make the talk but would love to see the transcript.

    1. I feel fortunate that we have coyotes/coywolves literally in our own backyards. As long as we can all coexist safely! I am not sure about a transcript or a recording of the talk, but maybe reach out to the contact person from the City mentioned in the article and inquire?
