is a Grotto?
A grotto is a group of cavers, who are usually members of
the National Speleological
In many parts of the country, these members have formed local
grottos or chapters and regional organizations. These groups
sponsor trips, offer training, teach and practice cave conservation,
and provide a framework for studying caves. Most grottos will
welcome new members who are interested in caves and committed
to cave conservation.
