Chris Clark, Program Coordinator for the American Cave Conservation Association, announces Fall Cave Cleanup:
The American Cave Conservation Association (ACCA) is hosting its Fall Cave Cleanup, November 11th, outside of Glasgow, Kentucky. This is a pit style cave, with approximately a 25-30 foot entrance pit. Volunteers began working on this cave in the spring of 2006. We are revisiting this site this fall in hopes of clearing out several tons of garbage at the base of the pit.
This pit is a smaller version of the Saltpeter Pit, in Pulaski County, Kentucky. Those of you that have been involved with that cleanup understand the nature of the job at hand. We are asking for volunteers that are both vertically competent, for in cave work. Plus, we also need a good group of volunteers on the surface to shuttle trash to the dumpsters.
ACCA will once again be providing lunch, refreshments, and as always, afternoon caving trips at Hidden River Cave. We will meet at the American Cave Museum in Horse Cave, Kentucky,around 8AM Central Time to drive to the site. In the interest of preparing for lunches and refreshments,please contact me at the museum, -- firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is a list of items that you will want to bring: helmet and light, gloves, clothes to get trashed, and of course any other caving gear you will need for later in the day. We look forward to working with you to help protect the underground.
