Coal River Environmental Education For Kids (CREEK)



The Coal River Environmental Education for Kids (CREEK) program provides wholesome and fun activities, mostly outdoors, to teach local kids self-sufficiency skills while instilling an appreciation for a clean environment on which our communities depend.

The CREEK program provides meaningful, memorable, hands-on learning opportunities. Kids either won't get this in school or they'll get a coal industry-approved lesson. In fact, several public school teachers receive grants to promote a pro-coal curriculum from the WV Coal Association. CREEK counters this propaganda with truth and an appreciation for a healthy environment. Field trips, guest speakers, and stream cleanups teach valuable lessons and, even more importantly, instill a sense of stewardship and pride in community service.
