National Speleological Society is the world's largest organization
dedicated to the exploration, study and preservation of caves. With over
12,000 members worldwide, local groups form into smaller organizations
called "grottos". These local grottos are your best avenue for learning
more about local caves, proper caving technique and etiquette and most
importantly, cave conservation. The NSS also holds its annual convention
in different locations around the country every year. Contact the NSS
for more information.
