The project was titled "Biological Inventory of the Invertebrate Fauna of Bridal Cave." The Science Research Class at Camdenton High School, where River attends as a junior, had been discussing the fact that a biological inventory would be an interesting subject. River immediately thought of us as the perfect place for this class project to happen.
Ten invertebrate were found as well as an invasive species, Oxidus gracillis, more commonly know as the Greenhouse Millipede. In the previous blog published last November, we shared a few photos of some of the other creatures that were discovered.

We are extremely proud to announce that River won second place in the competition in the zoology division. His efforts were very impressive and the findings are incredibly exciting. We are looking forward to getting a closer look at the final study to learn all about the diverse biology that exists in the unique ecosystem inside Bridal Cave.
