East Lake High School senior Eric Briggs shows his display on coyotes, to be posted along the nature trail behind Highland Recreation Complex, during the July 18 meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Largo/Mid-Pinellas.
LARGO – East Lake High School senior Eric Briggs was the featured speaker at the breakfast meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Largo/Mid-Pinellas on July 18.

Briggs spoke about his project as an Eagle Scout candidate. With the help of Largo parks supervisor Greg Brown, Briggs constructed a display board on coyotes and how people should deal with them. Kiwanis club donated $100 to help defray the cost of laminating the display.

Coyote sightings have become more common in Pinellas County. They usually travel in a pack, and can range in an area of 1,500 miles. They can be in a variety of colors, but are usually a shade of gray and the size of a medium, or 30-pound, dog. They are wary of humans, and will usually leave them alone unless they are protecting their nearby young.

The display will be posted along the nature trail around a pond behind Highland Recreation Complex and landscaped within native plants.

After graduating high school next June, Briggs said he plans to go to college to become a mechanical engineer.

Also during the meeting, the club inducted Daniel J. Ruffner into membership. Ruffner was a charter member of the club, but had to leave due to schedule conflicts.

Kiwanis is a worldwide service organization founded in 1915 and dedicated to improving the lives of children through local Kiwanis clubs.

The Largo Kiwanis Club is accepting new members, and meets twice a month: for a breakfast on first Fridays, 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., at Royal Palms, 200 Lake Ave. NE, in Largo, and for dinner on second Thursdays, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., at Roosterfish Grill, 776 Missouri Ave., also in Largo.
