Coyote School Programs

Coyotes have become ever present in the urban environment we share. Our coyote-preparedness education program empowers students (K-7) with the knowledge they need to prevent people-coyote conflicts and how to react appropriately in coyote encounters. Please use our freely available PAC / teacher kit to help build coyote awareness in your school.

Coyotes 101

  • Coyote identification, behaviour, and how coyotes came to our city

  • What to do if they encounter a coyote
