COYOTE HAZING:

Use a variety of hazing tools to frighten coyotes and deter them from backyards and play spaces:

  • Stand tall, wave your arms, and yell, approaching the coyote if necessary.
  • Use noisemakers (your voice, whistles, bells, or “shaker” cans filled with marbles or pennies).
  • Throw items such as sticks, small rocks, cans, tennis balls or rubber balls.
  • Spray the coyote with a garden hose or from a spray bottle filled with vinegar water.


Coyote Hazing Teams & “Wildlife Watch”

The City of Newport Beach is currently working on organizing Coyote Hazing Teams throughout the city to haze coyotes in their neighborhoods and educate their neighbors on coyote hazing. This is part of a larger partnership with the California Department of Fish & Wildlife where we are working towards a community Wildlife Watch Program, similar to Neighborhood Watch.

If you are interested in providing coyote hazing information to your community and assist the City with hazing efforts, send an email to aco@nbpd.org.


PREVENTATIVE MEASURES:

Protect yourself and your pets from nuisance animals like coyotes and other wildlife:

  • Fence off animal enclosures (fully enclose them, if possible)
  • Keep cats and small dogs indoors
  • Feed pets indoors
  • Store tin covered heavy-duty containers
  • Keep yards free from potential shelter, such as thick brush and weeds
  • Enclose the bottoms of porches and decks
  • Eliminate potential food and water sources, such as fallen fruit and standing water
  • Never feed coyotes

Providing food for wild animals is a violation of City & State law, and is a very serious problem. Coyotes fed by humans lose their fear of people, which can create a dangerous situation. If you are aware of anyone feeding coyotes, please report the violation by calling 949-644-3717.

Seeking Volunteers!

OFR is seeking volunteers for a Contract Committee to assist the Board of Directors in the development of Request for Proposals (RFPs), Project Solicitations, Negotiations and Contracting processes. The Committee will also assist in developing an OFR form contract and boiler plate terms and conditions for all contracted vendors for OFR.

Community Volunteer Opportunities

The Architectural Committee is seeking volunteers with experience or interest in the following areas: design, landscape, and architecture.

Safety & CERT is seeking volunteers as Street Captains to be responsible in assisting their neighbors on their street in case of an earthquake or other emergency. Duties and responsibilities would include creating a list of contact names and information to reach neighbors in case of emergency and liaise with the CERT team which will headquarter at the Bison Pool to dispense first aid, triage and communicate with local authorities.

Social Committee: One of the special qualities of our community is our event programming. Some events are coordinated by Management and others by volunteers.

Our Adult Social Committee Chair, Melinda Mason, has created wonderful events such as the Wine Tasting, Oktoberfest, etc. We are seeking additional volunteers to create vibrant adult events.

Our traditional family events include Easter, 3rd of July bike parade decorating, Fourth of July BBQ, Halloween, Snow Day/Holidays, Movie Night, and the Back to School Camp Out (which has not been held for the past few years). Volunteers are sought to assist with these events as well.

The OFR Aquatics Committee is a liaison to the Aquatics Director, Wes Edwards, who runs our children’s swim program including the Flying Fish Swim Team, swim lessons and pool monitors. The team parent/volunteers help coordinate team social activities, the swim meet catering and awards banquet.
