Stewardship Talk January 21: Coyote – Our Urban Adapter

If you’re like me, you’ve had lots of questions about coyotes. How can you tell a coyote from a dog, fox, or wolf? What do coyotes eat? Where do coyotes live?

We’ve planned a great presentation about coyotes for next Thursday, January 21 at 6:30 pm at the Paint Creek Cider Mill. Naturalist Laurel Zoet  will explore the biology, myths, and facts of coyotes. You won’t want to miss it!

Here’s the program description:

Coyote – Our Urban Adapter

  • Laurel Zoet, Naturalist, Nature on the GO!
  • Thursday, January 21, 6:30 pm at the Paint Creek Cider Mill (4480 Orion Rd, Rochester, MI 48306). Click here for a map: https://goo.gl/maps/U6wsDo44QV22

“Native Americans told legends about the coyote and yet today this wild canine only seems to see bad press. How can one animal be feared by some and revered by others? Utilizing data collected in recent big city studies, this one hour educational presentation will look at the biology, the myths and the facts about one of North America’s most highly adaptable animals.”

Hope to see you there!

  1. Can’t wait! This should be great. I hear them over the hill but rarely get to see them and I’m anxious to learn more.
