The Kansas City Area Grotto is the Kansas City chapter of the National Speleological Society (NSS), a nationwide organization of "cavers' - people interested in finding, exploring,documenting, managing, and preserving wild caves. KCAG is heavily involved with many caving projects, most of them in Missouri, although some of us also work in other parts of the United States and even overseas. Project caving includes discovering new caves, surveying, monitoring caves on behalf of government agencies. managing caves on behave of private land owners, conducting scientific research in caves, cave restoration and clean-up, publishing articles on caves, gating caves when necessary and all kinds of educational outreach programs. Anyone is welcome to join our group and learn more about caving.
