Wildlife speaker series: Living with coyotes

OTTAWA – If you are a resident of West Carleton, you are probably no stranger to the sound of the coyote. But there’s more to life with coyotes than the call of the wild.

The City of Ottawa is presenting its 15th Wildlife Speaker Series event Feb. 6 titled Living with Coyotes.

“The featured guest speaker is Dr. Stan Gehrt,” city staff released in a statement. “Dr. Ghert is a world-renowned wildlife ecologist. He has been studying coyotes in the greater Chicago metropolitan area since 2000 which has led to many interesting discoveries about how coyotes interact with humans and other animals in different settings.”

The event will also feature displays by local organizations.

There is no admission fee or registration to attend this event. The speaker series will start at 7 p.m. at Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Ave. W.
