The presentation will provide: basic coyote information, discussion on why coyotes are around you, pet and child safety tips, attractants, tips for deterring coyotes, appropriate responses when encountering a coyote, and proper hazing techniques. Participants will receive print materials and links to additional resources that will help provide consistent messaging and shared language to similarly address coyote coexistence in our communities. Environmental and human factors have resulted in more coyote sightings in our region's urban and suburban neighborhoods. This has created both excitement and fear among residents. Roots of Connection has assumed a voluntary role with Project Coyote to provide outreach and educational materials to foster a peaceful understanding and coexistence with wildlife. Coyote Coexistence Plans and materials, created by Project Coyote, are designed to ensure human safety, minimize conflicts, and promote coexistence through mutual respect, fairness and empathy.
Guy has been involved with the American River Parkway for more than 15 years and has created a strong network of environmental stakeholders while establishing himself as a Parkway leader focused on creating future stewards of the Parkway. He is an avid outdoor enthusiast and enjoys snowshoeing, hiking, camping and exploring the diverse landscape of California. He is a nature photographer focused on the lower American River, and has photo-documented Coyote for over 10 years. Guy works with the Effie Yeaw Nature Center, Sacramento Valley Conservancy, Save the American River Association, Friends of the River Banks and other Parkway entities. His primary focus is to bring County Parks, stakeholder groups and communities together to foster a deeper connection with, and appreciation of, the American River Parkway.
