BCCD Trail Map
Summer is starting to wind down and kids are going back to school, but now is the time of increased viral activity in mosquitoes which can carry West Nile Virus.
We just want to remind everyone, now is a great time to check your property for standing water and dump out any containers holding water to reduce mosquito breeding habitat.
Please remember to wear insect repellent while enjoying outdoor activities. There are a variety of EPA approved repellents that can help reduce the risk to West Nile Virus. Also, to reduce risk of mosquito bites, wear
long-sleeved light-colored shirts and long pants while outdoors during dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
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.
