The Board of the KKC hosted an Open House over Memorial Day Weekend. It was a very relaxing weekend with cavers that wanted to come down and spend time at the preserve. Doors were open to all and we had a great time. We are looking forward to our friends and family weekend in late July.
On May 10th a few volunteers went down and worked down at Big Bat. The morning started with Ed Berglund and Adam Sampson working on clearing the path down to the mushroom entrance. While they were doing that, Ken Bailey and Lore Berglund made the rounds to build landowner relations with the neighbors of the preserve. Then Ken and Lore came down and did an awesome trash cleanup for all the trash that had washed down the creek and into the area around the cave entrance.
Please pay extra close attention to the photo of the mushroom entrance. Just days before we went down there the Mushroom entrance was completely flooded and we had to remove debris off of the top of the gate. Also, you can see that the sink hole is completely full...and flooding into the waterfalls room.
