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.

site near where 441 was trapped and tracked

Coyote 441 is one of the most successful urban coyotes we have observed. This female was captured near the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago on March 10th, 2010. At the time of capture, she was a subadult in excellent condition, weighing 11 kg. A GPS collar was placed on her and we recorded her locations until November 2010 when her collar blew off (these collars are programmed to remotely fall off at a specified time).
