Advisory Board

The Western Cave Conservancy's Board of Directors is assisted by the Advisory Board. The advisors bring years of dedication to caves as well as scientific expertise in the disciplines of archaeology, entomology, geology and hydrology, professional cave resource management skills and cave rescue teaching credentials. Some Advisory Board members are past Directors or cavers interested in becoming a future Director for the conservancy. All members of the Advisory Board are longtime cavers, whose enjoyment of the underground has gone beyond recreational caving to become a major avocation and even a profession.
