Awesome! Great job by these folks, not only in the clean-up, but also in getting some new folks introduced to caving and conservation at the same time. And great PR as well! I was especially pleased to see that the USFS was brought into the project and that they actually worked with the caving community (for a change). Hopefully that is part of a new trend.

Kudos to you all!
Since you're doing a good job of promoting the project, be sure to check into state awards/recognition for such projects, too. Several years ago, Cleveland Grotto won a nice award from the State of West Virginia for a project we did there. It gets the good word out about not using caves as dumping grounds or billboards. :banana_yay:
