The Education Eddy will be a space for learning about the State of the Cheat River watershed during Cheat Fest. Inspired by Fall 2017 presentation series, the Education Eddy will be a place for Fest goers to learn more about Friends of the Cheat and our partners. Speakers will touch on all manner of environmental, science, and conservation topics. Come sit in on discussions, bring your questions and your camp chair, and enjoy rich discussion and learning!
