"Every year gets better as I see it with the grotto, 10 years old, still growing, many important projects accomplished, caves owned and managed, awards won, caves mapped, and much more. The whole key is our members, some of the best cavers I know!" - Buddy Baldwin

More Reports
Members of the Southport Chronic Cavers Grotto believe:
  • Caves have unique scientific, recreational, and scenic values
  • These values are endangered by both carelessness and intentional vandalism
  • These values, once gone, cannot be recovered
The responsibility for protecting caves must be formed by those who study and enjoy them. Most Southporters take this responsibility seriously. Read more about our philosophy in word and deed here.
