2014 Lehman Cave Lint Camp

The Western Cave Conservancy and the staff of Great Basin National Park will co-sponsor the 2014 Lehman Cave Lint Camp. Cavers are invited to participate in restoration activities in Lehman Cave in eastern Nevada on March 21 to 23, 2014.

The following is the tentative schedule that Gretchen Baker, Park ecologist and WCC Advisor, has provided:

Friday, March 21
Afternoon/evening: arrive; check in to park housing (we'll probably have a couple park houses. Participants will need to bring basic camping gear such as sleeping bag, pots and pans, towels, etc.). Refrigerators, microwaves, stoves, showers, and washing machines will be available.

In the afternoon/evening there will be potential cave trips or rope training in the maintenance shop.

Saturday, March 22
9 am: Meet at the Lehman Caves Visitor Center; lint camp training, divide into groups and work in different parts of the cave
12ish: Lunch (bring your own)
1-5ish: Lint camp work
5:30 pm: Potluck dinner/party/more rope training?

Sunday, March 23
9 am -12 pm: Lint camp work
12 pm: Lunch (bring you own)
1-3 pm: Talus Room tour
Late afternoon: depart or possible other cave trips

There's not many places to buy food, although the Border Inn in Baker has a small convenience store/cafe/motel and is open 24 hours. T&D's in Baker is occasionally open with a convenience store and restaurant.

Most all supplies are available in Ely (an hours drive way). For more about local amenities, visit http://www.greatbasinpark.com.
