On September 15, 2022 the district presented a rain barrel workshop. Workshop participants learned about the link between water quality and nonpoint source pollution and how their actions affect the watershed. Susan Boser, Penn State Extension Water Educator, presented a program focusing on watersheds, nonpoint source pollution and stormwater BMPs.

Eagle Scout Project - Duck Boxes
Hi, my name is Dalton Prevost from Boy Scout Troop 414 in Economy PA. I have been involved with scouts ever since I was a tiger cub scout. This spring, I reached out to the Beaver County Conservation District for an Eagle Project. They were happy to have me, and I am happy that I got to do my Eagle Project with them. Throughout this summer and fall I completed my project. My Eagle Project included the removal of all the duck boxes on the property, the refurbishment of five of those duck boxes, and the construction of five new duck boxes. I installed the new and refurbished boxes closer to the water on the property. As someone who appreciates ducks and all wildlife, and giving back to the community, I had a lot of fun and pride in this project. Doing this project with the Conservation District allowed me to learn a lot about leadership and taking action in my own community. I am thankful for the opportunity that the Beaver County Conservation District provided and happy to provide new homes for the wood ducks in the area.
Eagle Scout Project at the District
Hello, I am Eric Larson from Troop 766 and I have been a Scout for 11 years. During this past summer I began my Trail to Eagle which has included organizing and constructing five picnic benches for the Beaver County Conservation District. My trail began with wanting to give back to a community resource where the public is able to enjoy and learn about the natural resources in our area. I have learned quite a bit through various learning curves such as fundraising, time management, construction, and communication. I believe that these benches will be standing strong to serve the community for many years to come. Thank you for letting me have this opportunity to give back.
