What’s happening at Dunbar Cave?

The Dunbar Cave State Natural Area's Visitors Center

Dunbar Cave State Natural Area — The cave, as you may know, has been closed since the beginning of November.  We always close during the winter to let the bats hibernate in peace.  Usually we would reopen in April, but this year a bat infected with White Nose Syndrome was found in March and the cave was closed indefinitely.  We recently found out that even if this hadn’t happened, we still would not have been able to go into the cave after the first of May.  We have at least a foot of mud in many of the passageways (at least those we could even get into, some were just too slippery to manage) that will take months to dry. 

But we are doing a lot of other programs, which you can find listed in Clarksville Online.  In June we did 118 programs for 1,416 visitors, and we have 76 programs scheduled for July.
