What is SCCG's Official White-Nose Syndrome Policy?
"As a grotto we should continue to plan grotto cave trips for our membership to privately-owned caves that are not listed as Significant Bat Caves. The membership should practice Decontamination Procedures after each grotto cave trip. The grotto will not plan grotto cave trips to State owned caves, federally owned caves or caves owned by The Nature Conservancy. However, if it is proven that cavers are spreading White-Nose Syndrome the grotto will revisit this policy."
