Helping our community

One creek at a time.

Deckers Creek

Meandering and descending through a steep gorge, this beautiful tributary is filled with waterfalls, boulders, and rock slides, making it an attractive destination for kayakers and rock climbers.


Over the years, Deckers Creek has suffered. Acid mine drainage (AMD) from West Virginia's many abandoned coal mines and other pollutants harm the 64 square mile watershed and destroy natural habitats.

What We Do

Friends of Deckers Creek works to clean up the decades of environmental degradation inflicted on our watershed through AMD remediation projects, trash clean-ups, community outreach, and environmental education.

They're working hard down on Deckers, building the new walking bridge... but everyone put down what they were doing to watch this happen.

Just incredible....

Brush off the ice and get out an enjoy the sun today! Thick ice on the creek is melting fast today, but we hope some stays around to provide insulation for the resurgent trout populations! Find out more about how fish survive the deep freeze by visiting NOAA's web site at ://

I hope everyone is staying warm during these freezing days! We at FODC sure are trying to make the best out of a snowy situation. (Especially since we have this awesome hill right next to the office!) #sledding #snowyhills
