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.

Pollutants

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.
