ACT’s March Speaker to Shed a Light on the Real Eastern Coyote

BETHLEHEM –  Everyone seems to have opinions about the coyote – creature of our woods, sometimes hunted, sometimes revered, found in cartoons, legends, and stories. But what’s the real story of this intriguing and sometimes perplexing creature?

Join the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) on Friday, March 29 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm at the Bethlehem Elementary School to learn more. Our speaker is wildlife biologist Christine Schadler, who’ll address the life cycle and habits of the Eastern coyote, including how it has been shaped by changing habitat and competition with predators. We’ll learn how we can coexist with coyotes as we farm, hike, or garden, and otherwise share space  with them in the North Country.

Schadler holds a master’s in conservation biology from Antioch University and has studied coyotes for over 30 years.  A former instructor at the University of New Hampshire and Granite State College, she is currently the New Hampshire and Vermont representative for Project Coyote, a national organization that promotes peaceful coexistence with coyotes.

This event is free and open to the public and donations are welcome and gladly accepted. The program is geared toward adults and older children, but all are welcome. Save your spot by pre-registering at http://www.act-nh.org/education-events.  Everyone who preregisters is entered to win a cool door prize!
