Caving at the Lava Beds
What You Need To Know Before You Go Caving
1. Before entering any cave you must be “screened” for white-nose syndrome. If you have boots or other gear used in caves or mines outside of Lava Beds since 2006, or in caves or mines outside of the United States ever, please leave these items at home. This is an effort to prevent the spread of white-nose syndrome, a deadly fungal bat disease.
2. Most information you need to know is contained in our caving brochure.
3. Learn what it means to cave safely and cave softly, and put these ethics into practice during your visit.
