The Tuesday, June 16 webinar program will focus on “Living with Urban Coyotes.”

Wildlife takes center stage this summer in a series of webinar presentations. The Mercer County Park Commission Naturalist Department is planning four online programs focusing on wildlife that affects people’s lives, even in an urban environment.

These one-hour webinars will be presented by naturalists from the Park Commission and researchers from the Conserve Wildlife Foundation in partnership with the Wildlife Center Friends and funding provided by PSE&G. Programs are suitable for teens and adults. The programs are free and registration is required.

The Virtual Summer Lecture series will take place from 7 to 8 p.m. and conclude with a Q&A session for the public to ask questions about any of the topics after each program. Participants will be able to submit questions in advance of the program to

Questions can also be asked through the chat feature in the webinar. To join these programs, visit the following links:
