Stan Gehrt presents at the Crawford Soil and Water Conservation District annual meeting
Stan Gehrt is the featured speaker of this event.
Stan’s research has been conducted on the long-term population ecology and disease dynamics of coyotes in the Chicago Metropolitan area. His research team has been monitoring coyotes in this highly urbanized landscape for the past 12 years, having marked nearly 700 coyotes, making this the largest urban study of its kind. The general objective is to provide a better understanding as to how coyotes are successfully exploiting the urban landscape, and the implications of this trend for people, pets, and other wildlife.
Location: The Pickwick Place, 1875 N. Sandusky Ave., Bucyrus, Ohio
