Missouri is known as the Cave State with over 7,500 natural caves! There is a lot to learn about a cave's habitat and this coming Tuesday, you have the opportunity to learn from Missouri Naturalist, Shelly Colatskie. The Missouri Department of Conservation is putting together an Introduction to Cave's and Caving that can be attended virtually! Read on to learn more about this free event!

Habitats: Introduction to Caves and Caving 

Registration period: May 17 - June 14

Date: Tuesday, June 15, 2021 9:30 am - Tuesday, June 15, 2021 2:30 pm
Location: Online only

Come and join us virtually as we discuss the caves and cave life of Missouri and why we need to protect this unique ecosystem.

We will briefly go over caves and safety. There will be a brief break as the in-person crew caravans over to Cliff Cave at Cliff Cave County Park. We will then hop back on virtually and go through folks getting gear on, and entering the cave. This will be a hybrid event, with a limited 10 person in-person program. We are making this experience virtual too.

Photos of the cave trip (cave life, etc.) will be sent tp all virtual participants.
