Speleofest 2011, the 40th Anniversary
2011 marks the 40th anniversary of the Louisville Grotto‘s Speleofest. The fitting theme for this years event, being held Memorial Day Weekend May 27th to 29th at Lone Star Preserve in Bonnieville, Kentucky, is “Caving adventures past to present“.
The cave trips offered will include some new Speleofest caves and will bring back some old ones, and of course we will still offer the favored classics to some of the best caves in Kentucky. For those wishing to remain above ground there will be group kayak trips, a guided field trip focused on forest ecology and karst landscape, a beginners orienteering meet, climbing contests, kids activities, and lots of great self-led destinations detailed in the guidebook.
The event doubles as the annual fundraiser for the operation and maintenance of Lone Star Preserve.
