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”.   Free and open to all thanks to Friends of the Hancock Town Library. Co-sponsored by the Harris Center.
