Topic and Speaker

Coyotes in our Midst

Join Judy Paulsen, Coyote Project state representative and coyote expert, as she uncovers the beneficial role coyotes play in our urban and rural ecosystems. Judy will discuss practical ways that humans, domestic animals and coyotes can co-exist.

“Coyotes are the most-persecuted carnivore in the U.S.,” according to a video Paulsen will be showing. “When the coyotes move out, others will move in — whether you love them or hate them, they’re here to stay. ... They’re vital to the ecosystem.” Stay for a special film screening... The award-winning documentary film American Coyote: Still Wild at Heart by San Francisco-based filmmaker, Melissa Peabody (30 min. film) will be screened during this presentation.
