Registration required. This course will focus on the caves and

karsts of Meramec State Park. After an introduction we will see sinkholes,

caves, and the spring at the end in the Bear Cave-Copper Hollow Karst Complex.

We will also hike to the site/dump of the Copper Hollow mine that operated in

the mid-1800s. Come ready for moderate hiking (5 ½ miles, so hiking shoes/boots are important)

with notebook in hand! Bring water, a change of clothes, and lunch. Note:


to White- nose syndrome and its effects on bats, most caves

in Missouri have been closed to help prevent the spread of the disease. Please

note we will not be entering the cave. Designed for adults only.
