Song Dogs of the West: Coyotes on Mt Tam

Coyotes are often regarded as scary wild animals or pests. While this wild relative of domestic dogs can sometimes be dangerous or pesky, the often misunderstood coyote can be described with so many more words. Join us virtually on Mount Tamalpais (aka Mt Tam) to learn more about the amazing coyote. Culturally important to many people, highly adaptable, and an important part of most Mt Tam ecosystems, the "song dog of the west" is an animal worth studying!
