City of Arcadia Hosts Urban Wildlife Town Hall
The City of Arcadia is partnering with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and the Pasadena Humane Society to present an Urban Wildlife Town Hall to educate the community on urban wildlife, including best and emerging practices to discourage human-coyote conflicts in Arcadia neighborhoods. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at Camino Grove Elementary School in the multi-purpose room.
“The City of Arcadia is continuing to engage our community on this important issue,” said City Manager Dominic Lazzaretto. “We are excited to partner with CDFW to help educate Arcadia residents on how best to discourage wildlife, including coyotes, from becoming comfortable in Arcadia neighborhoods.”
CDFW Representatives will be on hand to discuss urban wildlife and how to take a coordinated and collaborative community-based approach to this evolving concern. “We value this opportunity to collaborate, provide technical expertise, and guidance regarding urban wildlife. It is a privilege serving local communities statewide to address human-wildlife conflicts and safe co-existence among humans, domestic animals, and wildlife”, said Vicky Monroe, the statewide Conflict Programs Coordinator.
