2009 Black Hills Cave Restoration Camp - South Dakota

Wind Cave National Park and Jewel Cave National Monument will host the Black Hills Cave Restoration Camp September 14-18, 2009. You are invited to be one of up to 20 volunteers who will be assisting with this conservation project.

The goal of the project is to restore the cave's natural condition along the public tour routes. This year’s camp will focus on removing lint and dust accumulations at both caves.

We are soliciting help from anyone interested in resource protection and restoration. No previous experience is required. There is no registration fee, and housing will be provided. Two days will be spent working at each cave, with Wednesday as a “day off” for caving and/or sightseeing.

To sign up, or for more details, please contact Marc Ohms at 605-745-1182 or Marc_Ohms[at]nps.gov. (Replace [at] with @) The deadline is Friday, July 31, 2009, and spots are available on a first come-first served basis.
