Our Wildlife Corridor Stewardship Team has been studying wildlife movement from east to west and west to east through Coyote Valley, documenting coyote, bobcat, mountain lion, deer, badger and other wildlife movement on a weekly basis for more than a year.
Our wildlife team has been observing tule elk along Coyote Ridge and surrounding east hills over the last few weeks! At least 25 tule elk on our last count!
Our bird survey team has identified over 167 species of birds in Coyote Valley including 17 species of raptors (including Golden Eagles, Bald Eagles, Short-eared Owls, Ferruginous Hawks, Falcons) and much more! The bird survey team identified a Crested Caracara on Friday, March 7 flying over the "core" of the corridor off Laguna Avenue! Learn valuable wildlife tracking skills!
