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.

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 28. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity
counts, and that they mean even more when we give together. Join the FODC team in giving back to the community at

Thank you to everybody who came to the Drafts on Deckers! The music was spectacular, the food was delicious, and the people were awesome! Thanks again to Morgantown Brewing Company for holding the proceeds night, and to our talented bands Whiskey Victor, The High Street Jazz Band, and The Manor and Friends.

This event never fails to be one of my favorites. Thank you again for coming out on Saturday and supporting us!

How many of you now have a cool Drafts on Deckers pint glass? Very happy to say we sold out of 'em!
