Conservation Work in 2008

There were six survey trips in 2008 from which we added 4584.4 ft of new survey to the books. This brought the total surveyed length to 90,736.6 ft (17.18 miles) and estimated passage length of 83,957.3 ft (15.90 miles). We have now surpassed Mystery Cave for third place on the Missouri cave length list. The figure below shows the annual history of survey progress and caver participation.
