‘The Real Eastern Coyote’
Moose Mountains Regional Greenways (MMRG) and Branch Hill Farm/Carl Siemon Family Charitable Trust (BHF/CSFCT) invite the public to a free slide presentation and talk on ‘The Real Eastern Coyote’ by conservation biologist Chris Schadler. This educational event will take place from 1 to 3 pm on Sunday, March 31 in the Middleton Town Hall, 182 Kings Highway in Middleton, NH.
A canid expert with 30 years of wolf and coyote research, Schadler is also an educator, NH representative of Project Coyote, and frequent lecturer about coyotes and wolves. She encourages people to come “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. Learn why it is a creature of our own making! It is smart, beneficial and by its presence, gives ‘wild’ back to our wild lands.”
Schadler is also an experienced New England sheep farmer who successfully avoided predation issues with coyotes. She will discuss coexistence strategies for farmers, hikers and gardeners and will demonstrate that “knowledge is power” when it comes to living with coyotes. Asserts Schadler, “Understanding the mind and ecology of the coyote can keep us one step ahead of problems.”
Light refreshments will be served. Pre-registration is helpful but not required. For more information, directions, and to register, contact MMRG’s Education Coordinator Kari Lygren at (603) 978-7125 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
