Support the Conservancy

Caves are special places. We want to see them protected and preserved through our dedication to securing permanent protection for threatened caves in the western United States. The Western Cave Conservancy was incorporated in 2002 and continues to run by an all-volunteer staff with two goals, preservation and access. 

The WCC currently owns and manage caves across 3 states, California, Oregon, and Washington. Our 50+ members support the mission of promoting cave conservation with responsible access. Basic membership is just $25 a year and helps us continue the work we do to preserve caves.


The Summer 2020 WCC Board Meeting will be held Sunday, Aug 2, at 1PM Pacific Time. Due to ongoing public health concerns, attendance will be online-only via Zoom.


The Western Cave Conservancy believes in protecting the natural wonder of caves in the western United States, dedicated to securing responsible access to threatened caves through public education and practicing cave conservation.
