Cave Exploration in Kansas

   The K.S.S. believes exploration of Kansas caves should: be as orderly and systematic as possible; allow free exchange of information between those conducting the research; be done in a manner consistent with the society's conservation ethic; promote positive landowner relations.
   The search for Kansas caves continues, with members following leads from many sources checking as many karst features as possible. Landowners and others are asked to contact the K.S.S. if they know of sinkholes, springs, pits, wells with running water at the bottom, or cave entrances. K.S.S. members can assist landowners in identifying cave and karst features and water resources. If you've ever wondered what's "in there" or "down there," contact the K.S.S at: kss@caves.org
