Urban Coyote Talk with Audubon Conservation Director
Monday November 16th 6:30-7:15pm
Coyotes have become established in Gresham neighborhoods just as they have become established in many urban areas across the United States. Some people are happy to see these wild dogs while others are concerned about conflicts.
Come learn about urban coyotes with Audubon Conservation Director, Bob Sallinger. Bob has been working on coyote issues in the Metro Region for more than two decades and will provide information on why they are here, coyote biology and natural history, and how to prevent and resolve conflicts. A 30 minute presentation will be followed by time for questions and discussion.
