To increase awareness and understanding of coyotes, wolves, bears, bobcats and other North American carnivores, Project Coyote representatives and advisory board members provide presentations, workshops, film screenings, and innovative educational events throughout the year nationwide — from California to New Hampshire and points in between! Check the calendar below for an event near you.
Events range from Project Coyote-sponsored programs to conferences where one of our representatives or advisory board members is a guest speaker, session organizer or moderator.
We also provide public screenings/post-film discussions of various films and documentaries including American Coyote ~ Still Wild at Heart, Cull of the Wild ~ The Truth Behind Trapping, and more.
If you are interested in having one of our representatives or advisory board members speak at a particular function or before your community and/or provide a film screening/discussion, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us for an educational forum about coexisting with coyotes, highlighting the partnership between Project Coyote, Marin Humane, and Marin County Parks. These agencies came together and created the Marin Coyote Coalition to help coordinate the ways in which all of our local agencies respond to concerns about coyotes. One of the most important elements of this coalition has been educating residents about properly coexisting with coyotes.
For more information please contact Captain Cindy Machado at (415) 506-6209.

Coyotes—known as North America’s native Song Dog and as God’s Dog by the Navajo—are the most common and persecuted native carnivore in North America. Revered by many Native American tribes as tricksters and creators for their cunning, adaptable ways, coyotes have expanded their range across North America, filling vacant niches left where gray wolves once lived.
Come learn from Project Coyote Ranching with Wildlife Coordinator Keli Hendricks about the remarkable adaptability and resiliency of this successful predator, and the challenges and opportunities coyotes provide to both urban and rural communities. Entertaining and informative, this presentation reveals the fascinating and complex world of Canis latrans—their keen intelligence, amazing resourcefulness, and importance as keystone carnivores in many ecosystems.
