We Need Your Help!
Threats are real

West Virginia and Virginia are famous for caves, karst, and plentiful springs. But these are threatened daily by pollution, careless acts, and land development.

Once destroyed, cave formations and environments cannot be replaced. When ground water is polluted, we all suffer.

The success of the West Virginia Cave Conservancy can be possible only with the support of cavers, landowners, land use planners, and others who understand the importance of caves and karst.

Success is up to YOU!

Your membership and donations allow us to purchase caves for protection, and manage them well. In addition, you support our education and conservation activities. Join the WVCC or make a donation.

Help protect the quality of our water and our cave resources.

The West Virginia Cave Conservancy

The West Virginia Cave Conservancy (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.

The West Virginia Cave Conservancy, Inc. is a volunteer, nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation, chartered in West Virginia.
