Join us at Gilman Library for an evening with Christine Schadler, Wild Canid Ecologist, member of the North East Wolf Coalition, Representative for Project Coyote in NH and VT, co-founder of the NH Wildlife Coalition, and author of Becoming Wolf: The Eastern Coyote in New England. Her program, "The Real Eastern Coyote," begins at 7:00 pm in the Agnes Thompson Meeting Room on the lower level of the Gilman Library. Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome to attend this free program. See you there.
Chris earned a M.S. at Antioch University Graduate School. Her thesis focused on the natural recovery of the Eastern Timber Wolf in Michigan. Beginning in the early 1990s, Chris taught Conservation Issues, Dendrology and Wolf Ecology at the University of New Hampshire, receiving many teaching excellence and student recognition awards. She is now an Adjunct Professor at Rivier University. While wolf recovery was the focus of her early work, Chris’ attention shifted to the eastern coyote when she moved to New England. She chose a farm with known coyote problems to raise sheep and experiment with non-lethal predator control. Using sound livestock management and common sense, she avoided predation for two decades. Chris has provided talks to livestock growers and the general public for 30 years on living with coyotes. Chris is now the Representative for Project Coyote in NH and VT and co-founder of the NH Wildlife Coalition. She divides her time between teaching, giving talks and working on her book “Becoming Wolf: The Eastern Coyote in New England”. Between presentations she can be found at camp in northern New Hampshire researching coyote feeding patterns and responding to the occasional wolf. She is also the Chair of the Webster Conservation Commission.
