FALLS VILLAGE — Wildlife conservationist Ginny Apple will talk about the state’s coyote population in a virtual talk at the David M. Hunt Library Saturday, Feb. 20, at 2 p.m.
Register at www.HuntLibrary.org, on the library’s Facebook page, or by calling 860-824-7424.
In the Zoom event, Apple will also cover coyote essentials from behavior, habitat, and reproduction to advice on how humans and coyotes can exist together without conflict. Often described as an opportunistic animal with regards to habitat and diet, the coyote is also known as the “trickster” in Native American folklore and legends.

Her house is within Peoples State Forest where she observes a large population of black bears, supplying field notes and photographs of them to DEEP biologists.
