Coyotes of Eastern New York

September 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

A program about “Coyotes of Eastern New York” will be presented at the Delaware Otsego Audubon Society’s public meeting on Friday, September 15, 2017 at 7:30 P.M. Coyote sightings are typically on the increase in late summer through early fall, with coyotes having more mouths to feed and the ability to adapt to many environments. Michael Clark, Department of Environmental Conservation Region Four Wildlife Manager,will enlighten us about these fascinating mammals, drawing on his vast experience in the field.

Michael is based out of both the Stamford and Schenectady offices. He oversees and is responsible for all wildlife related work, staff and issues that occur throughout the nine counties of Region Four. He represents the region on the DEC’s state-wide Bureau Management team and works closely with all of the region’s Wildlife Biologists, Technicians and Foresters to make sure that the Bureau of Wildlife’s mission is carried out.

Mike Clark attended SUNY Cobleskill and received his AAS degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Technology, and then started working as a seasonal wildlife technician out of the NYS DEC’s Central Office working on Endangered Species, waterfowl, and big game. After a few years he realized that he would need at least a bachelor’s degree to pursue his career goals of becoming a Wildlife Biologist. So, he then went back to SUNY Cobleskill and completed his BT in Wildlife Management. A couple of years later he was promoted to Wildlife Biologist based out of DEC’s Region One working as the region’s deer biologist as well as working with the state endangered Tiger Salamander. Four years later Mike took a transfer to the DEC Region Four where he was the Regional Sportsman Education Coordinator and Furbearer Biologist, as well as land manager for two wildlife management areas. In April of 2016, after working in the region for 6 years, he was promoted to Region Four Wildlife Manager.
