October 10, 2017


EAST LIVERPOOL, OH - Master falconer Mick Brown, of Martins Ferry, OH, was featured at the 40th annual Pioneer Craft Days on October 7 at Beaver Creek State Park in East Liverpool, OH. Brown displayed three of his finest Harris's hawks; Pippa, Purdy and Zippy, at the Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center during the event. Brown has hunted with his hawks for three decades across this region and beyond, including several hunts at Windy Hill Tree Farm in Calcutta, OH.

The Wampum Chapter of the North Country National Scenic Trail was one of the many vendors who participated in the event. Club members took time to help youths carve personal walking sticks that they could keep during the two-day event.

Beaver Creek State Park ODNR Naturalist Mike Mainhart offered a hands-on archery shooting display for youths near the Pioneer Village during the event.

The Pioneer Craft Days was presented by the Friends of Beaver Creek State Park. Find them online at: and Facebook. Visit the Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center at: or on Facebook.
