Glen Canyon Coyotes In Sausalito

If you’ve spent much time in Glen Canyon, then you’ve probably come across our local resident expert on coyotes Janet Kessler, toting her camera. Now is your chance to see what she’s shot:
Coyotes are social and, except for some transients, live in families. The 28 large zoomed-in snapshots in this exhibit show some of their less-seen behaviors and interactions, as well as their individuality: each coyote looks different, and the differences reach deeper than their fur. Short howling and hunting video clips are included. An explanation of a few relevant survival behaviors and some simple guidelines help round out “the picture” of these neighbors who are becoming a more visible part of the urban landscape.
Janet Kessler a.k.a, “the Coyote Lady” in San Francisco, has been called a, “pioneer in the photo-documentation of the lives of urban coyotes, capturing their intimate lives”. She is a self-taught naturalist and urban coyote specialist who, daily over the past 11 years, has been documenting coyote family life, their behavior towards people and pets — and our pets’ behavior towards them — and getting information and easy coexistence guidelines out to everyone. Google her “Coyotes As Neighbors” video, and visit:

    She is no expert!! I’ve seen her many times chasing these poor animals all over the hillside. She has no right to any show. No education what so ever. She thinks the coyotes were here first. They were introduced to California in the 80’STOP THE SHOW!!

    Janet Kessler has been called out as an unreliable source of information about urban coyotes. Please contact Randall Junior Museum about her attempts to promulgate false information. Coyotes are not indigenous to California
