Cave Tours Closed for Season
Cave Tours are closed for the winter. Tours will resume April 26, 2014. All trails on the monument remain open.
Crews are removing brush along highway 46 beginning in the lower parking lot and moving down the highway. Work is scheduled to last until April 20, 2014; expect delays.
Volunteer groups can help make enormous strides in reducing lint and trash along the cave tour path, removing invasive plants, and clearing and piling brush. Scheduling a day or half-day of volunteer work for your group can build camaraderie and help your group meet its service goals.
Contributions and accomplishments of volunteer groups:
Give us a call at (541) 592-2100 or e-mail us to arrange a volunteer activity for your group.
