Coyotes in the City?!
A Presentation on Urban Coyotes by:
Bob Sallinger, Conservation Director Audubon Society of Portland,
Barbara Brower and students, Geography, Portland State University
March 3rd @ 6:30 PM
Grant High School
2245 NE 36th Avenue
Coyotes have established themselves on urban landscapes across North America. Today they can be found in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Cleveland and yes, Portland! Although coyotes have lived in NE Portland for years, they have suddenly become much more visible in recent months.
Come learn about urban coyotes, the role they play in our urban ecosystem and how we can reduce and prevent conflicts. The presentation will focus specifically on the increased coyote sightings in Alameda, Grant, Irvington and Beaumont-Wilshire Neighborhoods.
Bob Sallinger has been tracking urban coyote issues across the Metropolitan Landscape for nearly two decades. PSU and Audubon are launching a new Urban Coyote Project which will focus on increasing awareness and understanding about urban coyotes and developing best management practices to prevent and reduce conflicts.
