9:00 am – 2:00 pm, Meet at OIT Dow Center entrance
Katrina Smith will lead you through a one-hour tour through one of the Lava Beds National Monument’s most popular lava tube caves, explaining the process of formation, pointing out the spectacular features, and introducing participants to the fascinating critters that live in caves. Next, your ranger will give a Lava Beds bat talk probably inside the Mushpot Cave. Includes lunch.
Note to Registrants: Bring sturdy, closed-toed shoes and appropriate clothing (temperatures within the cave are approximately 45-55 degrees F). Flashlights and helmets will be provided, but participants are also encouraged to bring their own. Participants will need to be prepared to sit in a cave for up to one hour for the talk.
