In her first official release concerning the upcoming 2015 National Speleological Society Convention, Luge Hardman, the Mayor of Waynesville, Missouri, enthusiastically welcomed an expected 2,000 cavers to the community.

The letter, addressed to convention participants, invites visitors to come and enjoy the natural beauty and historic sites in and around the diverse, progressive community of Waynesville.

Sitting on Historic Route 66 and Interstate 44, the city of 4,800 features museums, shopping and dining as well as a newly revitalized our historic downtown square and the only urban trout stream in the state of Missouri.

Mayor Hardman assures that cavers and cave divers alike will have plenty to keep them occupied. With over 6,300 caves, Missouri is affectionately known as the “Cave State.” Pulaski County itself boasts over 300 caves itself, including Roubidoux Spring which is known nationwide as one of the largest underwater cave systems.

The 2015 NSS Convention will take place July 13th to 17th. For more information or to register, visit the 2015 NSS Convention website.
