Illinois Speleological Survey - July 28, 29 Shawnee NF

Postby Wayne Harrison » Jun 27, 2007 8:51 pm


The Illinois Speleological Survey (ISS) is pleased to announce an opportunity for cave survey, caver-camaraderie and volunteer work rolled into one. The ISS works with the Shawnee National Forest (SNF) to conduct an inventory of karst features within the holdings of the SNF. The ISS has made arrangements with the SNF to survey in Equality Cave (AKA Cave Hill Cave) near Harrisburg, IL on Saturday and Sunday, July 28th and 29th. Harrisburg is less than 3 hours from Marengo, IN and is less than an hour south of I-64 for those that are traveling from convention westward.

This opportunity will provide participants a chance to survey and see one of the most highly developed maze caves in the eastern US. Equality is gated and open for research and survey purposes only. This is part of an ongoing effort to survey Equality Cave entirely and assist the management needs of the cave.

Camping will be primitive but free. Interested cavers of all skill levels should contact Jack Wood or John Lovaas to sign up. Further information will be posted on the ISS website: Illinois Speleological Survey

Please pass this along to other who may be interested and also to repost on forums and list-serves.
