I would like to remind everyone about the wonderful opportunity tomorrow!
Please join in on the free webinar called “Caves and Karst – The World Beneath our Feet” on Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 7 p.m. Eastern time.
The pictures in the webinar are outstanding, making the presentations really enjoyable. There will be excellent programs on the hydrology, geology, biology and paleontology in cave and karst systems.

Virginia has 27 karst counties, the western part of the state in the Valley and Ridge region, so this is good information for everyone to know. Rivers leading to the Chesapeake Bay start in and flow through karst topography in Virginia. This webinar will also be great to use in Project Underground workshops, classrooms, or any education events. The power points will be on the BatsLive website for use in the future. If you missed the Bat Flight field trip last month, it is on the website now. It was really well done.
