Friends Of Wind Cave NP

The National Speleological Society promotes safe and responsible caving practices, effective cave and karst management, speleology, and conservation. Members are bound together by their love of caves and caving and their desire to learn about the underground wilderness and protect it for future generations.

NSS membership offers worldwide caver camaraderie and networking opportunities and access to information about discoveries and developments in caving, speleology, equipment, and techniques through our publications, annual conventions, grottos, internal organizations, and NSS-sponsored projects, expeditions, and surveys.

With 7,200+ members and 200+ grottos, the National Speleological Society is the largest organization in the world working every day to further the exploration, study, and protection of caves and their environments, and foster fellowship among cavers.

The National Speleological Society is holding it’s annual convention this summer from June 13th through 17th in Rapid City, SD.  The convention is hosted locally by the Paha Sapa Grotto.  The Friends of Wind Cave NP will have a booth at the convention to promote membership and accept donations to further our cause.
