Save the Date — Special Coyote Hazing Meeting

CATEGORY: Current Events · In the News |
On Nov 28, 2016


Thursday, January 19, 2017

Doors open at 6 pm / Meeting begins at 6:30
Griffith Park Visitor’s Center Auditorium
4730 Crystal Springs Drive 90027

Please join your neighbors from Los Feliz Improvement Association
Franklin Hills Residents Association
Oaks Homeowners and Friends of Griffith Park
for this informative meeting on coyote/human interactions in our neighborhoods.

National Park Service urban coyote biologists Cathy Schoonmaker and Justin Brown will be presenting this program amid growing concerns regarding coyote moving into residential areas. There will be a PowerPoint presentation discussing urban coyote behavior and reducing coyote attractants. Additionally, a coyote hazing video will be shown followed by how and when to haze coyote. Participants will then go outside for a demonstration of tools and hazing methods. Hopefully this training will help if you encounter coyote in your neighborhood. The “loudest whistle in the world” will be given to 99 attendees — the room capacity.

All residents are invited to participate in this event.

If you spot coyote along your route, please take time to fill out this report for the Griffith Park Natural History Survey
