Come hear all about Coyotes in Vermont. The Weathersfield Conservation Commission is hosting Kim Royar and Dr. David Pearson at the Weathersfield Center Meeting House on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 beginning at 7pm.
“Vermont’s coyotes now occupy a role as natural predators in our ecosystem, but they also have become highly controversial. We want to help people understand them from an objective, scientific perspective, and we want to help people learn how to live with them because they are here to stay.”  - Mark Scott, Vermont’s director of wildlife

During her 33 years with Vermont Fish and Wildlife, Kim Royar helped landowners improve wildlife habitat, she did extensive research on bobcats, coyotes and other furbearers, she worked to restore Vermont’s population of American martens, and she worked in Fish and Wildlife’s central office as a special assistant to the Commissioner.

Dr. Person did research on coyotes in Vermont for his UVM Master’s Degree as well as research on wolves, deer and predator-prey dynamics for 22 years in Alaska. He has authored more than 40 scientific journal papers, as well as reports on the ecology of coyotes, wolves, deer, flying squirrels, predator-prey theory, quantitative ecology, and subsistence hunting. He currently resides in Braintree, Vermont.
This presentation is free and open to the public.
