Caves in Crisis: A Photo Exhibit

When: Month of October, 2007
Where: Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center, 11715 Cragwold Road, Kirkwood, MO 63122 (St. Louis), (314) 301-1500,
Further information: (314) 301-1500 or William R. Elliott, Missouri Department of Conservation, (573) 522-4115 ext. 3194,

This educational exhibit will contrast the beauty of caves and their wildlife to the vandalism that occurs there too often. Some of the top cave photographers have contributed their photos for this exhibit: David Bunnell, Jim Huckins, Rickard Walk, William R. Elliott, Michael Carter, Eugene Vale and others. Visitors will see how cavers try to restore damaged caves by scrubbing graffiti and repairing damaged cave formations. Conservationists team up with landowners to protect important caves with rugged cave gates. Hundreds of hours were spent on these conservation projects, and the public is becoming interested in the methods that were developed. The best protection for caves is an informed public, which we hope will result from this exhibit. Free admission to the public, open 8:00 AM-5:00 PM all week.

During October Powder Valley will also exhibit free videos about caves on the weekends, during the regularly scheduled video hours of 10:00 AM-4:00 PM. Included is the new "Caves: Life Beneath the Forest" about cave life in Hoosier National Forest, Indiana. No reservations required.

This exhibit will coincide with the National Cave & Karst Management Symposium, October 8-12, at the nearby Holiday Inn Southwest/Viking Conference Center. More information is at ... nckms.html
