2010 Black Hills Cave Restoration Camp - South Dakota

Postby ReneOhms » Mar 5, 2010 1:13 pm

Wind Cave National Park and Jewel Cave National Monument will host the Black Hills Cave Restoration Camp September 13-17, 2010. You are invited to be one of up to 20 volunteers who will be assisting with this conservation project!

The goal of the project is to restore the cave's natural condition along the public tour routes, by removing accumulations of "lint" (clothing fibers, hair, skin cells), trail dust, and other unnatural debris.

We are soliciting help from anyone interested in cave resource protection and restoration. There is no registration fee, and housing is provided. Two days will be spent working at each cave, with Wednesday as a “day off” for caving and/or sightseeing.

To sign up, or for more information, please contact Marc Ohms at Marc_Ohms[at]nps.gov (replace [at] with @) or 605-745-1182 by Friday, July 30, 2010. Space is limited, so register early!
