Volunteers needed for cave maintenance at Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park

Regular cave cleaning is an important part of cave conservation

Staff at Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park are seeking volunteers to help with a post-season cleaning of the caverns.

Volunteers in this event will get the chance to see the park up close as they work to reduce some of the impacts from visitors in the cave and on outdoor trails. This includes removing lint and dust from the cave formations, steps and pathways. Trail work will involve pulling noxious weeds and repairing rutted trails.

The event will be Saturday, Oct. 7, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Volunteers will meet at the Main Visitor Center for a brief orientation before the work begins.
