I thought you might be interested to know that the Wisconsin DNR has on-line “chats” on various topics throughout the year. I discovered this when I was looking for information on the recent coyote kill of cattle which had originally been blamed on wolves. That search led me to an interesting chat on coyotes.
Farmers and hunters in Wisconsin (and probably elsewhere) are always so eager to blame the wolf for any animal kills. Wolves and coyotes share the same red meat diet – wild animals. But as more and more of their habitat is taken away, both wolves and coyotes may find that beef is a good substitute.
In the list for future chats, I noticed there will be one on Wisconsin’s Native Plants held on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 at 12:00PM CST. If you’re interested in participating sign-up for a one day reminder.
Wildflowers along with pollinators and monarchs all share the same loss of habitat that the wolves and the coyotes do. There is much we can do to restore habitat in our our yards. See Gardening for Life and Welcoming Wildlife Into the Garden with Native Plants by Doug Tallamy.
