One of the most beautiful animals in North America lives among us here at the Arboretum—the coyote. The color of its fur is a varied palette of earth tones. Myriad hues of browns, grays, blacks, and whites are woven together to form a magical coat. It is a thatch work of clay, dry grass stalks, morning sun, bird songs, river sediments, decaying pine needles, a summer breeze, wildflower seeds, frost, burnt trees, lichen, pollen, moths, and moonlight.
Nature is an inexhaustible source of wonder. Hope to see you out there.
