One of the hottest topics in the neighborhood lately (other than the weather) is the presence of coyotes in our coastal town.

At the July Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council (CSPNC) meeting, CSPNC President James Dimon announced briefly that coyotes will be trapped at White Point Nature Preserve. At this Monday’s meeting, California Department of Fish and Wildlife Southern Enforcement District Lieutenant Kent Smirl will speak about implementing a Wildlife Watch program.

This month’s CSPNC meeting will be held under the stars on Monday, August 17 at 6:30pm at the Point Fermin Park bandshell. There will be food and beverage for those who show up early.

Do you have questions or concerns about coyotes? If so, please attend the meeting. Other topics of discussion will be the future of the Red Car, a potluck beach party, and neighborhood watch porch candle program. Download the full agenda on the CSPNC website.

UPDATE 8/18:
The presentation regarding coyotes by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) last night was quite informative. They are aiming to educate the public about Continue reading
