SFBC (San Francisco / southern Bay Area) and Diablo Grotto (Oakland / eastern Bay Area) are both quite active and do a lot of trips to the SEKI area -- they aren't particularly convenient to you meeting-wise but you could try contacting them to see about joining trips.

The SJVG does indeed exist. We are meeting tomorrow at Kaiser as advertised, though it's now on the second floor. Go up the elevators to the second floor and hang out. someone will find you. We don't have a lot of organized trips but we are fairly well plugged into CRF and can direct you as needed. There is a program on local canyoneering.
Caving Guru wrote:Very interesting. I did not realize that the San Francisco Bay Chapter and the Diablo Grotto were pretty active. I just looked at both of their websites and SFBC has on their public calendar about one cave trip a month but the Diablo Grotto does not seem to have a public calendar. So do you know how active the Diablo Grotto is, Steven Johnson? Also, I am curious as to what SEKI stands for. Thanks.

One of the other things that's coming up is the NSS Western Regional Meeting is Sep 19-21 in Columbia, CA and now has online registration ready. This is on the WR webpage, as well, so check things out there, also. http://westernregional.weebly.com/
Going to a regional meeting, will give you a bird's eye view of a good number of cavers and what's happening, along with sessions on caving, some trips in the Mother Lode area, where a lot of cavers in northern California cave, as well as folks from southern California, also. Of course, down south, is where most of the southern caving takes place.
If you were just hiking in Redwood Canyon...and found Liliburn Cave, that's something, so you are definitely a great hiker. There are some good hikes up farther north, in California, so hopefully, you'll learn more about all of the caving/hiking from the folks at the regional...or at least there in Fresno.
P.S. If I can assist you more, let me know.
