Sanctuary at Berry Lecture - Chris Mowry on Coyotes
Berry College Associate Professor of Biology Christopher Mowry will give a talk on urban coyote populations at 6 p.m., April 23 at Oak Hill and The Martha Berry Museum.
This lecture is the second installment of the five-part Sanctuary at Berry Lecture Series hosted by Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum during the run of their newest exhibition, “Sanctuary at Berry: Wildlife Photography by Gena Flanigen.” The lectures focus on the research and experience of faculty members with various species found on the Berry campus.
In 2014, Mowry founded the Atlanta Coyote Project, an organization of scientists devoted to learning more about coyotes living in the metro Atlanta area. Mowry has also done extensive research on coyotes that live on the Berry campus and northwest Georgia.
After the lecture on April 23, the galleries will remain open until 8 p.m. Guests are welcome to view the exhibition and will have the chance to speak with both Mowry and Flanigen. The exhibition features work by Flanigen and explores Berry’s wild inhabitants, including a variety of birds, mammals and reptiles. Sharing these images offers a chance to examine the rich history of the coexistence of humans and wild animals on the college campus.
