The National Caves Association, which represents more than 80 show caves in the United States, Bermuda and Barbados, has declared June 6 as National Day of Caves and Karst to increase awareness of the roles both play in our lives and the environment. Karst is an area of land made up of limestone; its landscapes feature caves, underground streams and sinkholes on the surface. Ruby Falls is going to celebrate, too!
We are so pleased to have the Southeastern Cave Conservancy to come and help us spread the word about cave conservation! They will be onsite with a Karst water model, that shows how water moves through karst as compared to regular soil. They will also have salamander magnets for the kids to make! Ruby Falls’ own Sammy the Salamander will be there, helping us hand out Salamander keychains! Brochures about the karst features at Ruby Falls will also be available.
