We wanted to join Jeff in doing a short cleanup trip to Pettijohn's. We mostly stayed in the entrance room picking up trash where we saw it. Jeff made a tool to reach down into the cracks that came in pretty handy. Of course we sent the boys, Lee & Jacob, where us old, fat guys couldn't go to pull out the debris of caving trips long past. We stayed in cave for almost four hours picking up trash, talking about conservation with other groups that we passed, letting the boys enjoy climbing about. We had a great time and made new friends. See Ya'll at TAG!!

Good job on the clean up....Cavers do Rock!
Not really the same thing, but I think a lot of little spur of the moment clean-ups take place during cave trips. I know I've picked up things (usually bottles, cans, or old batteries) as I was going thru caves before. But, I once gathered up over a dollar in coins while going thru a crawl in Graves cave. ;D
Someone had periodically lost the change from their pocket as they were going thru the crawl as coins were spaced from one end to the other. ;D
