Coyote program planned

Staff report

Whether reviled or revered, coyotes are very clever and adaptive animals. This is proven by their opportunistic and creative instincts to find food and habitat in a wide array of environments. Learn more about the lives of Ohio’s coyotes during a free public program on March 30 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).

The program will take place at ODNR Division of Wildlife’s Lake Erie Unit, 305 E. Shoreline Drive in Sandusky.

Topics to be covered by ODNR Division of Wildlife officials include coyote biology, ecology, population trends and current status, dispelling myths about coyotes, and what to do if you encounter a coyote. Preventing, reducing, and eliminating conflicts with urban wildlife, including coyotes, will also be addressed.

This program is best suited for ages 16 and up. The program is free but pre-registration is required as seating is limited. Call Division of Wildlife in Akron to pre-register at (330) 644-2293.
