Did you know there are over 300 caves in Montana! Each one has its own challenges and stories.  Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park will host an interpretive program dedicated to helping you know the challenges of caving as well as giving you safety advice.


“Caves are very challenging and dangerous places to explore but the feeling of crawling through tiny areas is not matched,” Park Ranger Derrick Rathe said.


This program is focused to help visitors know the risks involved with caving and how to cave responsibly so you don’t do damage to the cave or yourself.
