LECTURE: Coexisting with Coyotes

  • Thursday, November 7, 2019. 6:30 to 8:30 pm
  • Oakland Township Hall, 4393 Collins Rd, Rochester, MI 48306

Eastern Coyotes are found across North America and are very much at home in Oakland County.   They are here to stay and have adapted quickly to our ways, our behavior, and our landscaping practices and as a result they often live in close proximity to our homes.   Human indifference however is not the appropriate response for a coyote that lingers outside a home.  It is easier than one may think to change their behavior and harmoniously coexist by keeping coyotes wild. This program will include photos and video, present facts on coyote natural history and behavior, and include techniques to minimize human- wildlife encounters and conflicts. Jonathan Schechter is the Nature Education Writer for Oakland County Government and a seasonal Lighthouse Keeper for Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
