This was the third time that northeastern cavers rallied to help the flood victims of the Schoharie region following Tropical Storm (Hurricane) Irene. The Fall NRO auction and Northeastern Cave Conservancy Barn Dance also dedicated all proceeds to flood relief. Total raised by cavers to date: $6,946.
Many thanks given to area landowners who have graciously permitted cavers to explore and study their caves. It's been a great way to give back, along with many days of labor, including cavers in helmets, lights, coveralls, etc. cleaning out basements and crawlspaces where others decline to tread.
