"ON HOLLOWED GROUND"
Let's hear it
for Virginia Cave week!
Week promotes an understanding of Virginia's caves and the
surrounding limestone habitats known as karst. Sponsored
by the Virginia Cave Board, the week is used to encourage
educators of all subjects to actively engage their students
from kindergarten through high school using in-class activities
and by visiting one of the state's numerous commercial caves.
This Web site
can be considered a common point for interesting sites having
to do with caving, caving-related education, class-room
activities, virtual caves, and all kinds of other interesting
links. So, select the menu buttons to the left to open pages
