Public Meeting on Coyotes June 4

In response to the many questions and inquiries regarding coyotes roaming the Northeast we are hosting a meeting on Wednesday, June 4th at 6PM.  The meeting will feature DNR Biologist and Fur Bearer Specialist, Jay Butfiloski and Clemson Extension Agent, Dr. Timothy Davis.  The meeting location is downstairs at the CIECD building, which is located across the pond from the Clemson Lake House.  To reach the building by car drive around behind the Clemson Extension Offices, the red brick building, and take the paved road down the hill (Civitas Circle).  To view a map of the property click here.  We are the green building with the flag.

Coyotes have established residency in all 46 counties of South Carolina.  You can read more about coyotes and their habits by clicking here.  In addition to the presentation on coyotes, our speakers will discuss alligators, snakes and other common species found in our local area.
