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:

Did You Know?
Scorpions fluoresce or glow under ultraviolet (UV) black light. They can glow electric green or blue. Scorpions fluoresce because they contain a fluorescent protein in the upper layer of their exoskeleton. This layer is like your fingernail, but even more protective and tough. The special protein inside is thought by scientists to serve as an ultraviolet sensitivity mechanism, perhaps allowing the scorpion to avoid burning itself by staying exposed too long to damaging light levels.
