As a reminder, tomorrow Saturday October 7th, The Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center in Columbiana County, is hosting our annual Falconry Event from 11:00AM to 4:00PM. Mick Brown, master falconer, with his three Harris's Hawks, along with other falconry experts, will show their birds, up close and personal, providing many outstanding photo opportunities. Flight demonstrations will be held during the afternoon in the grassy area behind "The Center". Mick, as always, will entertain and educate you about falconry with his interesting stories. My wife Denise and I, would like to put out an invitation to the Ohio and Pennsylvania birding community, to come and visit us at "The Center" for this special event. We will be a part of the volunteer host staff from 10:00AM to 5:00PM. To those who have not visited "The Center", in reality it is a museum of natural history, with over 375 bird and mammal mounts in natural settings. Everything from a full size Musk Oxen to a Great Gray Owl can be seen, with a Passenger Pigeon thrown in for good measure. In The Ohio Room, the "WOW Room" as we call it, birds and mammals that have been, or are regularly found in Ohio, can be seen. If you were to take The Ohio Division of Wildlife "Birds Of Ohio" Field Checklist, mounts of 188 of the species on the list can be found at "The Center". BCWEC is located at 12798 Echo Dell Road, East Liverpool, Ohio 43920. It is also adjacent to and at the entrance to Beaver Creek State Park. As an added incentive for a visit, Pioneer Days down in the park will be taking place in the restored village area, centered around Gaston's Mill. Come on down and see us. You won't be disappointed. Of note; this is the final, open to the public weekend of the 2017 season, at "The Center".
