Crawlathon 2009
« p: 08.01.2009 21:26 »
"This is the the 28th annual CARTER CAVES CRAWLATHON. It is a much anticipated event among the hardy individualists who attend it loyally. It is somewhat unique among "caving" events in that it provides beneficial activities for anyone interested in caves and caving without regard to their level of expertise. Some who attend have never "caved" before, while others may be among the best known cavers in the country. Anyone interested in caves or caving will find something they can do."

Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."

Sv: The 2009 Crawlathon Has Been Cancelled.

"Dear Crawlathon Guest:

I am writing to inform you that based upon the recommendation we received today from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Kentucky State Parks has decided to cancel this year’s Crawlathon at Carter Caves State Resort Park.

This request has been made due to the significant threat of the introduction to Kentucky of white-nose syndrome, a disease that is fatal to hibernating bats and has been found in caves in Northeastern states. In recent days and weeks, this disease has spread to other states.

Carter Caves State Resort Park is home to 65 percent of the state’s hibernating population of Indiana bats, a federally endangered species."
