    Utah is famous for its magnificent National Parks, canyon country, and one of
    the largest saline lakes in the world, but one generally doesn’t associate
    Utah with caves.

    Although Utah is not known for extensive cave systems or even great numbers of
    caves, it does contain a considerable amount of carbonate-rock terrain and
    some of the best-developed alpine karst anywhere in the western U.S.

    Main Drain, at 1,227 feet deep, and Ricks Spring, one of the biggest
    underwater cave discoveries in the western U.S., sinkholes as much as 1,000
    feet across and 100 feet deep. These are just a few of the interesting items
    that Larry will discuss.

    Larry has worked as a Groundwater Hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey
    since 1988. He also has been an instructor in karst hydrology/geomorphology in
    the "Speleology for Cavers" short course at NSS Conventions for many years.

    This will be a very interesting webinar with great information and pictures of
    Utah's alpine caves and karst.

    Please arrive early space is limited. All webinars are recorded and stored on
    the NSS website http://www.caves.org/ These webinars are available for viewing
    or downloading. We encourage Grottos to use the webinars for your meetings.

    After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information
    about joining the Webinar.
