Volunteer at the Timpanogos Cave Restoration Camp This September
Utah’s Timpanogos Cave National Monument is looking for volunteers to help clean and restore the cave during its second annual restoration camp this September 26th to 28th.
Each year 70,000 visitors tour Timpanogos Cave in American Fork Canyon and leave behind clothing fibers, hairs, skin cells, dust, and other foreign particles. In order to maintain the caves high state of preservation and protection, and continue to provide a high-quality visitor experience, on-going restoration of cave features is essential.
Now, more than ever before, the National Park Service relies on volunteer caver help to achieve its cave management goals.
Objectives for this year include cleaning lint accumulations, cleaning splashed mud from walls and formations, removing and cleaning bridge sections over cave lakes, and speleothem repair.
Volunteers who take the job will be provided with free camping accommodations, complete with flush toilets and a shower. In addition a BBQ and caving presentation will be held on Friday night.
As a special bonus, anyone that attends all three days will receive a voucher for two regular tour tickets to be used in the 2014 season.
