Join Gavin Van Horn as he discusses his forthcoming book, The Way of the Coyote, which explores the diversity of species that can flourish in urban landscapes like Chicago. Part urban nature travelogue, part philosophical reflection on the role wildlife can play in waking us to a shared sense of place and fate, The Way of Coyote is a deeply personal journey that questions how we reconcile our needs with the needs of other creatures in our shared urban habitats. Gavin is the Director of Cultures and Conservation at the Center for Humans and Nature. His work focuses particularly on how place-based values are developed and strengthened in dialogue with local landscapes. He explores cultural perceptions of wildlife, place-based ethics, endangered species recovery, ethics, and policy, and the values involved in ecological restoration projects, community gardening, and wildlife management.
