The Bexar Grotto is committed
to the protection of caves and cave conservation activities. These activities
include exploration, education, restoration, protection, and assisting
government agencies and private landowners in developing management plans
for caves and karst. Bexar Grotto members have contributed many hours
of volunteer time and effort to study and protect these valuable resources
and enjoyed themselves in the process!
The Bexar Grotto is a chapter of the
National Speleological Society (NSS).
The NSS is a non-profit organization affiliated with the American Association for the
advancement of Science. The NSS was founded to advance the study, conservation,
exploration, and knowledge of caves.
Since 1983 Bexar Grotto has provided a forum for cavers to meet and participate
in various caving activities, including surveying/mapping, exploration,
and conservation projects.
