Coyote Scat I.D. Party @ Audubon Center at Deb's Park | Los Angeles | California | United States

Come work with the biologists from the Santa Monica Mountains National Park Service to dissect sterilized coyote scat (poop!) collected in Thousand Oaks, and to identify the contents!

We will provide protective equipment and tools. We will also provide bagels and coffee, but feel free to bring lunch/snacks for yourself or to share!

We ask that participants under age 16 come with a parent or guardian, and to our younger audiences, please realize that scat dissection is a delicate science and requires patience and focus. If you’re coming with a kid, please download a ticket for each of you.
