The Bigfork High School Cave Club was created in 2005 to provide high school students with opportunities to participate in wholesome recreational activities through cave exploration, and work with land managing agencies to restore and conserve fragile cave resources. The club maintains an active membership of 15 students. Cave club members participate in about 2 recreational trips each year and 6 conservation projects. In 2010 the club was awarded the President's Environmental Youth Award (PEYA) for their work in the conservation of caves in Glacier National Park. They were also invited to present at the opening ceremony of the International GIS Conference in San Diego. At the conference they spoke to a gathering of over 10,000 people! In 2018 club members were invited to be the keynote speakers at the annual convention of the National Speleological Society. They spoke to a crowd of nearly 1000 people on their work in caves throughout the western United States. In 2019 the club again won the President’s Environmental Youth Award for their work in conserving bats facing the threat of White Nose Syndrome. We are always looking for projects, partners, and opportunities to share our program with others. Please contact us for more information.
