Urban Coyotes

Stanley Gehrt, Ph.D,

Assistant Professor and Extension Wildlife Specialist at Ohio State University

 The howl of coyotes echoing across our urban landscape had become an increasingly common occurrence in recent years. In fact coyotes can be found even in the most urbanized areas of our city. Come learn about the animal that Navajo sheep herders once called "God's Dog." Dr. Stanley Gehrt recently completed a study of urban coyotes in Chicago that has been described as “The most ambitious work of its kind in the country.” Dr. Gehrt tracked 220 radio collared coyotes in Chicago over  the course of his six year study. His work is fascinating and will provide valuable insights for wildlife lovers, wildlife professionals and neighborhoods learning about urban coyotes.

 Cost: $8 for members of Audubon Society of Portland, Oregon Zoo, World Forestry Center, students, and seniors; $10 for all others.

Location: Oregon Zoo
