The City of Mount Dora and Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission are holding a Coyote Awareness Workshop at the W.T. Bland Public Library on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 11 a.m.
Coyotes are found throughout Florida and have been documented in all 67 counties. This medium-sized canid is extremely adaptable and can be found in rural, suburban and even urban landscapes. They are typically shy and elusive but encounters between people and coyotes in Florida are occurring more often.
The City of Mount Dora and Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission want our residents to be informed and educated about coyote activities, habits and safety for your home, pets and neighborhood.
Catherine Kennedy, Biological Scientist with FWC, will be hosting the educational workshop. Kennedy is a Senior Wildlife Assistance Biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Her work seeks to minimize adverse impacts of wildlife on human populations by promoting wildlife awareness and education to make coexistence with native species possible. This presentation will discuss coyotes in Florida- their biology, their history, and common conflicts as well as strategies to reduce conflicts and keep pets safe.
There will be handouts and literature for everyone to take back to your home or business. After the presentation, there will be time for a Question and Answer session. Residents not just from Mount Dora, but from Lake County, are encouraged to attend this event. There is no registration needed and it is open to the public.
