The annual Cheat River Festival is a celebration of new life, that which comes each Spring and the new life that can be found in the Cheat River watershed. Cheat Fest is Friends of the Cheat’s annual fundraiser which helps us advance our watershed projects and supports the organization’s administrative costs. Rain or shine, Cheat Fest is always a good time!

From 11:30am ’till 11:30pm on Saturday, May 7th, the festival grounds in Albright, West Virginia will once again transform into a haven for boaters, music lovers, and families. Bands from all over Appalachia will entertain crowds with live music all day, while Fest goers browse the Art Market, learn about other
non-profit organizations that share the FOC vision, bid on a great array of silent auction goods, buy fCF_DancingGirlsrom a variety of food and merchandise vendors, and above all, help support Friends of the Cheat.

Another reason to love Cheat Fest: kids under twelve are free! This year, kids of all ages will congregate at the ever-growing Kid’s Tent from noon ’till 5:00pm for a host of hands-on activities.

The View Below: Amazing Sights in Our Streams and Rivers

March 4, 2018, 2:00pm - March 4, 2018, 2:30pm

Freshwater Journeys in partnership with Roots & Shoots at BucknellU and Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association, Inc. presents .... The View Below: Amazing Sights in Our Streams and Rivers Sunday, March 4, 2:00-3:30 PM Gallery Theatre at Elaine Langone Center Bucknell University (Lewisburg, PA) We often perceive that there isn’t much to see beneath the surface of our nation’s freshwater rivers and streams, but once we look underwater, an amazing world appears. Fish of incredibly diverse colors, shapes, and behaviors live in freshwater ecosystems. The streams themselves create other worldly, breathtaking streamscapes, giving humans willing to submerge themselves the opportunity to witness incredible ecological feats, such as thousand-mile fish migrations, predator-prey interactions, or the vibrant-colors of mating displays. The underwater world of our rivers and streams is unexpected, largely unnoticed, and amazing! Underwater naturalist Keith Williams shares his adventures of exploring and discovering the underwater world of our Susquehanna River and her tributaries, including the Pennsylvania 2018 River of the Year – the Loyalsock Creek – in this engaging free presentation. About the Presenter: Keith Williams has developed river snorkeling-based science curriculum and has established river snorkeling programs for non-profits and the U.S. Forest Service. Keith has led thousands of people on river snorkeling adventures. His first book on river snorkeling, Snorkelhead, was published in 2016. FREE and open to the public. This project was financed in part by a grant from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program, using Environmental Stewardship Funds, under the administration of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation and administered by the Pennsylvania Organization of Watersheds and Rivers. #PARiveroftheYear #LoyalsockCreek #LoyalsockLove #Susquehanna
