Coyote: America’s Songdog
with Geri Vistein of Maine’s Coyote Center
6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Join conservation biologist Geri Vistein as she takes you on a journey to discover who this important and resilient carnivore is, in a way you’ve never heard before. But this presentation is all about us as well, since we share the landscape and our lives with Coyote. Because life on earth is deeply interrelated and complex, this presentation is inclusive, touching upon anthropology, archaeology, prehistoric and modern history, Native American life, poetry, human psychology, human belief systems, European worldviews, wildlife science and ecology, animal husbandry, and much more. This program will center on “Perceptions and Relationships” — Coyote and Native Americans and European Americans, Coyote’s relationship with other wildlife and the ecosystem, and Coyote and us – how do we share our lives with Coyote? The presentation will give community members a chance to come together and share their own stories, ask questions they have been wanting to ask, and share a dialogue that helps us all to understand better our very deep rooted relationships with all life, including our fellow humans. Come hear the Songdogs Sing!

vital role in maintaining the biodiversity of our planet. Her work centers on
educating our Maine community about carnivores, their ecology, their
complex cultures and history, and how we can coexist with them. She achieves
this by working closely with our farmers who wish to learn coexisting skills, by
creating outreach projects with artists, musicians, and puppeteers, experiential
programs for our children, giving support to educators of our children, and by
presenting various programs on carnivores and us to diverse audiences all over the
state of Maine. She is the Founder of Coyote Center for Carnivore Ecology and Coexistence
whose Mission is to share with community members the science we know of
our returning carnivores and the skills to live well with them. Visit her two
