Tour Season Opens for 2011
The 2011 tour season at Oregon Caves opens this Saturday, March 19.
“This year is especially exciting,” says Superintendent Vicki Snitzler, “because Southern Oregon Public Television (SOPTV) will release two, 30-minute long high-definition videos about Oregon Caves National Monument this spring.” One video is about the natural history of the Monument, and the other is about its human history. Both are in final production and will air late this spring on SOPTV, with a later release on Public Broadcast Stations throughout the Northwest this summer.
Minimal food services are available by the Natural History Association through early May. The Historic Chateau will open with food, lodging and gift shop services on May 7. For more information on cave tours call 541-592-2100. For lodging or reservations at the Chateau, call 541-592-3400.
