Birders from across the country gather each spring in Fayette County and surrounding areas for the annual New River Gorge Birding Festival. “Every single excess dollar we generate goes into the Leadership Fayette County program which has been providing leadership training and skills to local youth for the past 11 years or into environmental education training at Wolf Creek Park. In both instances, the area’s children get the opportunity to learn from experts from around the country and from around the county,” Dave Pollard, president of the Fayette Education Fund, said in an interview earlier this year.
