Becoming Wolf: The Eastern Coyote in New England
Join wild canid ecologist Chris Schadler to learn the fascinating
ecology and surprising behavior of New England's eastern coyotes.
Through slides and discussion, Chris will share her insights into
these intriguing animals, gleaned during her many years of studying
them in the wild. She will also share her research on coyote feeding
patterns around cattle farms in Coos County. Don't miss this
opportunity to find out what coyotes are really up to in New
Hampshire! Chris Schadler, a Wild Canid Ecologist, earned her
Master’s degree at Antioch University in Keene, completing her
thesis on the natural recovery of wolves on the Upper Peninsula of
Michigan. When she moved to New England she became interested in the
eastern coyote. Her early work focused on sheep farm management in
coyote territories and more recently, on researching coyote feeding
patterns around cattle farms in Coos County. She taught in the
Department of Natural Resources at UNH for 10 years and is working
on her book “Becoming Wolf: The Eastern Coyote in New England”.
