Coyote has been culturally significant for many generations and is featured in myths and legends of many Northern Californian native cultures. Today, Coyote still thrives in the open spaces and woodlands of the American River Parkway. Come hear stories and see photographic images captured by presenter Guy Galante who will lead a presentation about coyotes, holistic tracking skills, and how seeking Coyote can lead to a deeper appreciation for and connection with the Parkway, each other, and our selves. Join the field study, a sunrise hike with Guy into the wilds of the American River Parkway. Who knows what will be found!

Seminar - Oct. 27 from 6:30-8:30pm at Effie Yeaw Nature Center

Field Study - Oct. 28 from 7:30-10:30am along the American River Parkway

Speaker Bio: Guy Galante has been studying and photographing coyotes along the American River Parkway for nearly a decade. In the process he has photographed not only coyotes, but the rich bounty of life that lives along and in the river. A former classroom educator, Guy finds deep satisfaction in mentoring youth and adults in the wonders of the Parkway. His goal is to create future stewards of the land through connecting people with nature. His photography work has been featured in state capital offices, Sacramento art galleries, and many homes throughout the region. Some of his photos appear in the new edition of ARNHA's American River Almanac.
