Northern Rocky Mountain Grotto

Founded in 2000, our purpose is to promote the discovery, exploration, scientific study, and conservation of caves and karst. Our club consists of members who actively survey, inventory, map, photograph, monitor, and recreate in caves in all parts of the state of Montana, Idaho, the Northern Rockies, Canada, and beyond! Although our core group is centralized in Montana, our membership is diverse and currently spreads across Washington, Idaho. Wyoming, Utah, Texas, and California! The NRMG is a unique club – we are very spread out, yet somehow we’ve kept our club active and together for over 20 years!
