Lehman Caves Restoration
To reduce the everyday wear and tear on the cave, crews must actively clean the cave system. This includes the removal of algae, and tedious process of lint removal, where crews painstakingly remove accumulated lint from the cave formations with nothing more than tweezers and paint brushes.
We can all do our part to reduce our impact to all cave systems. Always make sure you stay on the paved trail, and be extra careful not to touch the cave walls or cave formations, even with your clothing. And always remember the caving motto:
"Take nothing but pictures,
Leave nothing but carefully placed footprints
Kill nothing but time"
For more information on cave restoration and 'soft caving' please Speleological visit the National Speological Society.
