The WCC is acquiring 150 acres of property near Volcano, CA, containing over 10 known caves (including Santa Claus/Pearl, Mushroom, Lulu Bell, and Connie’s), plus acres of karst with sinks, holes and flowstone fragments.This rare opportunity was made possible thanks to several large pledges from generous donors and WCC’s very own acquisition fund. This purchase will guarantee the preservation and conservation of these wonderful caves for years to come and grant cavers, like you, responsible access to enjoy them. Please help support the WCC in this endeavor through a tax deductible donation. Just $100 a year for the next 3 years will help the WCC retire the $200k loan with minimal interest and ensure continued access through our trusted management plan. Click below to donate today; all contributions, in any amount, large or small, will help immensely. Thank You!
