Postby PYoungbaer » Jul 31, 2013 8:32 pm

"The Fort Stanton Cave Study Project (FSCSP) has been recognized by the prestigious International Congress of Speleology at their recent weeklong conference held in Brno, Czech Republic. The organization meets every four years in different parts of the world. The 2009 conference was held in Texas, and previous to that France, Greece, Spain and China are other nations graced by these internationally known scientists and cavers."

“Excellent exploration is conducted with excellent science and follows top standards for cave protection. The Fort Stanton Cave Study Project stands as a shining example for all members of UIS to follow,” stated the committee."

FACSP President John Corcoran: “The spirit of this project is volunteerism in support of the Bureau of Land Management, The Conservation Lands Foundation, the National Forest Service, the wonders of an incredible natural resource, and long-lasting fellowship and dedication of cavers and researchers.”
