Living with Wild Pennsylvania Canines

Dan Lynch and Jerrold Czech Jr., Pennsylvania Game Commission  

April 16


Recent sightings of coyotes, coydogs (coywolves), and foxes in Wissahickon Valley Park prompted FOW to learn more about them. Speakers Daniel Lynch and Jerrold Czech Jr. of the Pennsylvania Game Commission will discuss the presence of these wild urban canines who rely on the park for the critical habitat it provides, and how to live in harmony with them while improving safety for park visitors. They will also bring sample pelts for display.

Deputy Game Warden Dan Lynch has been involved with wildlife education for the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s southeast region for 24 years. Jerry Czech has been the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Game Warden for the past 21 years, currently assigned to Philadelphia County.
