Speaker:Chris Schadler, Conservation Biologist, wolf and coyote specialist.

Snow date February 18.

Myths surround the coyote and cloud our understanding of it. Learn the true story of the eastern coyote – how and when it arrived in New England, how it lives among us but is rarely seen and how it contributes to keep our forests and fields healthy. Does it really have wolf DNA, or dog? Learn why it is a creature of our own making – an animal different than the western coyote in genetics and behavior but with the same superior resilience and adaptability.  It is smart, beneficial and by its presence, gives “wild” back to our wild lands. Despite the ecological benefits the coyote brings, it is the most persecuted carnivore in North America.  And despite human efforts to eradicate it, it survives and thrives among us.

Chris Schadler, M.S., Conservation Biology, will discuss coexistence strategies, whether you farm, hike or garden.  “Understanding the mind and ecology of the coyote can keep us one step ahead of problems”, according to Chris, who, with 30 years of wolf and coyote research, sheep farming, and teaching, will demonstrate that “knowledge is power” when it comes to living with coyotes.
