SCCi Fricks Cave Open House has been cancelled

SCCi Fricks Cave Open House has been CANCELLED.

The Board of the Southeastern Cave Conservancy regrets to inform our members that we have decided to cancel the Fricks Cave Open House scheduled for February 28. We made this decision due to our concern for the population of over 10,000 endangered Gray bats that depend on this cave.

White Nose Syndrome, which has proven lethal to bat colonies where it has been identified, appears to have recently spread southward into Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Given the still-unknown transmission method of WNS and the large number of visitors from around the region that attend this event, the board determined that the most prudent action was cancellation.

The SCCi takes the WNS threat seriously and continues to monitor the situation and take steps that are consistent with our goals of cave conservation and protection. To stay updated on developments, please visit the SCCi web site at http://www.scci.org.
