New Jersey Cave Conservancy

Our Mission Statement

The mission of the New Jersey Cave Conservancy is to promote the protection, preservation, education, and conservation of the unique underground environments present in our state. At one time there were over 100 known caves. Many of our former caves have been quarried away or permanently filled in. Although fewer than ten New Jersey caves ever had speleothems of note, they are a relatively rare geological resource.There are specialized forms of flora and fauna found in this type of environment which should be protected.

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.
