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.
