The Mid-Atlantic Karst Conservancy, Inc., leased this cave in Virginia for a number of years. It had been a long-closed cave. Board Member Jeff Jahn and Front Royal Grotto successfully managed the cave with very few problems and with good landowner relations.
The property changed hands in 2016 and there was a five-year pause in access. In 2021 the new owners decided to renew the lease with MAKC.
Jeff and the Grotto worked extremely hard on this project. We are thrilled to have the lease renewed. Please respect this lease agreement and do your part to ensure that the lease continues, as well as exploration, mapping and studies.
