see details + The Coyotes of North America

In recent years, their numbers have grown so much that they now live close to people.  Dan Bogan, PhD will discuss his research into coyote behavior and ecology in suburban landscapes where people and coyotes coexist. Learn more about their biology and behavior and ways to reduce or precent problems from occurring between people, pets and coyotes.
