We are deeply saddened by the recent passing of Cliff Lindsay of Frankford, WV. Cliff was one of the founding members of the West Virginia Cave Conservancy and had served as a Director since its inception. Cliff was involved in many caving organizations and made many contributions to the sport. Those of you that have visited the Fuller’s and SSS entrances to Culverson Creek have experienced his generosity first hand. The WVCC has lost a true visionary and leader and we will miss him and his contributions. • Read more here •
The West Virginia Cave Conservancy Inc., (WVCC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving and protecting important cave and karst resources of the Virginias for future generations.
Caves contain a fragile beauty only found underground. In addition, their streams and passages provide irreplaceable environments for specially adapted, and often rare, species of animals, most of which could not survive elsewhere.
Protecting karst (limestone) landscapes is critical to our supply of clean drinking water. Rural areas of West Virginia and Virginia rely heavily on water from springs and wells in limestone.
