Va Cave Week 2015

Presented by friends of the Virginia Cave Board

This year we are celebrating Virginia Cave Week
April 19 through 25, 2015


Cave Week Theme - "BAT Conservation"

Let's hear it for Virginia Cave Week!

Virginia Cave 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 with links to the related subject. Enjoy.
