15 Jan Wildlife Speaker Series – Coyotes – February 6, 2020
The City of Ottawa is hosting a presentation on “Living With Coyotes” on Thursday, February 6 at Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West. Doors open at 7:00pm with opening remarks and presentation beginning at 8 pm. Parking and admission are free.
Dr. Stan Gehrt from Ohio State University will be making a presentation on coyotes and how they have adapted to life in cities across North America. Some residents have noted concerns with coyotes living among us, which is why it’s important to better understand how we can coexist safely together. Dr. 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.
