POSTPONED – Nature Night: Exploring the Mysteries of Coyotes in the City with Stanley Gehrt PhD

We have postponed Bird Alliance of Oregon’s Nature Night with Stan Gehrt on Tuesday, January 14, 7 p.m. at the Oregon Zoo due to the strong possibility of inclement weather. Fortunately, Stan will still be joining us for this season of Nature Night and we have rescheduled for Tuesday, April 28, at the Oregon Zoo’s Cascade Crest Banquet Center. We hope to see you there! Please note, you do not need to re-RSVP.


Thank you for supporting Bird Alliance of Oregon and our speaker series. For registration questions, please contact Matthew Hushbeck, mhushbeck@birdallianceoregon.org



Don’t miss your chance to hear a fascinating story about urban wildlife from a world-renowned expert! Stanley Gehrt, PhD will be joining us from the Midwest to share his nearly 20-year study of how coyotes in Chicago have adapted to the city as their natural environment and share previously unknown details of how they live in harmony with the bustling concrete jungle. Stan’s one-of-a-kind work has been featured on NPR, PBS, National Geographic! This is a must-attend for anyone interested in the wonders of natural life.
