2016 Experience the Bounty in Beaver County

Beaver County Council and Staff would like to take this opportunity to let our participants and attendees know that The Bounty in Beaver County will not be held in 2016. Beaver County and partners have hosted the event for the last seven years, though it has been successful and attendance has been good, it was not reaching the targeted audience of local rural businesses. We would like to thank everyone who has participated in the Bounty over the last seven years for your continued commitment and support of local tourism in this area.

Trickster or Survivor?
Co-existing with the Iconic Coyote

Mixing astounding biological facts with personal observations, this presentation is sure to dispel commonly held myths about this persecuted canine and shed light on the coyote’s ability to survive when so many species are in alarming decline.
