White-Nose Syndrome (WNS)

Mar
18

The Northern New Jersey Grotto urges everyone to educate themselves about White-Nose Syndrome (WNS), a deadly disease that is currently effecting the bat populations in the Eastern US. We strongly encourage everyone, including our members, to avoid all caves and mines that harbor hibernating bat populations. Many caves in the Eastern US have been closed in an effort to limit any caver initiated spread of the disease. Please confirm the current access policy before entering any caves, and use the recommended decontamination procedures after your trip.
