On Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 6:30pm Belfast Garden Club and Belfast Free Library continue their free winter evening programs series, “Wildlife Conservation in Maine” in Belfast Free Library’s Abbott Room. The March 11th talk will be Coyote – America’s Songdog presented by conservation biologist Geri Vistein.

Coyote has a long history on the North American continent: coyote’s relationship with Native peoples and the European Americans; coyote’s complex relationship with Maine’s ecosystems; and coyote’s relationship with us. Despite the fact that scientists have learned so much about carnivores and their immense value in the workings of the earth, human attitudes, behavior and laws in our society toward carnivores have not changed very much in the past 500 years. This presentation will express Nature’s design in the powerful relationship between the predator and their prey, and will explain why this relationship is vital to the health and diversity of our Maine landscape.

Geri Vistein is a Conservation Biologist whose work focuses on carnivores and our relationship with them. She has participated in many research projects in the West, including the Grizzly Bear DNA study in Glacier National Park. She works with Land Trusts and other research biologists, and has created the educational network “Coyote Lives in Maine”.

The talk is free and open to the public. The Belfast Free Library is located at 106 High Street, Belfast, Maine. For more information visit: www.belfastgardenclub.org, email belfastgardenclub@gmail.com or call Corliss Davis at 207-930-3562.
