Alaska Caving Contacts, information, and status?

Postby flightfollowing » May 6, 2016 10:18 am

I am interested in getting involved in some Alaskan Caving this summer in Southeast Alaska, and was hoping to get more information or connect with other Alaskan Cavers or Cavers interested in visiting Alaska, I live seasonally in Alaska.
However, I tried emailing all of the glacier grotto contacts and UAS cave club contacts found at the Alaska Caving website: ... index.html

and had zero replies from all 5 contacts, as well as a bad email address for the Allreds found on that website.
Anyone know the status of the glacier grotto or UAS cave club, or have any contacts for anyone who might be familiar with Caving SE Alaska

NZCaver (aka Jansen Cardy) lives in Alaska and could probably help you out. The caving clubs in Alaska are not very active that I am aware of.

Glacier Grotto is apparently now defunct (no current listing of any Alaska grotto on the NSS website). I live in Alaska, but not in a region with any caves to speak of.

You could try contacting the Tongass National Forest for more information on caves on POW Island.
