Coyotes have adapted to life in cities across North America. Their human neighbours may not realize they’re around until they notice tracks in the snow or hear their song at night. Some residents may be concerned about coyotes living among us, so it’s important to understand how we can coexist safely.

Join us for a presentation by Dr. Stan Gehrt from Ohio State University. He has studied coyotes in Chicago since 2000 and made interesting discoveries about how coyotes interact with humans and other animals in different settings. The event will also feature displays by local organizations.

Admission is free and will be on a first come, first served basis.

Free parking is available at the City Hall garage at 110 Laurier Avenue West on weekday evenings after 6 pm and all day on weekends.
