Upcoming events


Chicago, IL

Polar Adventure Days is a free, family event for the public taking place both indoors and outdoors at Northerly Island, Chicago, IL. The purpose of the event is to get Chicagoans outdoors during the winter, exploring and learning about nature in the city.

The Cook County Coyote Project Research Team will be participating this year and hopes to see everyone there! Please visit the Chicago Park District's website for details and questions.

Coyote 1

Coyote 1 was the first coyote captured on the project, on March 22, 2000, and has become the signature coyote of our research. When she was originally captured, she was just a year old and solitary. She weighed 13 kg (about 29 lbs), and was in excellent health, if not a little on the small side. In coyote years, she was a teenager. We tracked her movements over portions of five cities for the next nine months, as she floated across the landscape looking for a territory.
