Natural History and Ecology of the Eastern Coyote

April 27 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Please join us for guest speaker, Dana Goin’s talk about eastern coyotes, their natural history and ecology, and what we can do to best coexist with them. Coyotes have become exceptionally adept at living amongst humans in recent decades, even going so far as to thrive in cities such as New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. They are also very common in our area of Connecticut and neighboring New York, where their howls and “yips” are familiar sounds of the night. Join us to better understand the behavior and benefits of the eastern coyote, and how to empower our community with the tools, information, and resources needed to coexist alongside this often misunderstood and wrongfully maligned predator.

Dana Goin is the Wildlife Outreach Specialist at the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, NY. She holds a degree in Wildlife Conservation and has worked in various areas around the country studying large and mid-sized carnivores, including mountain lions, coyotes, and bobcats.
