"For a La Crosse conservation group, rescuing a bat population means keeping people away from them.

That's why the Mississippi Valley Conservancy says it's admittedly going slightly outside its normal mission to buy an 83-acre site near Wauzeka, Wis.

The group wants to put the caves at the Kickapoo Indian Cavern off limits to commercial spelunking in order to protect three threatened species of bats that make those caves their home."

"When I try to imagine a faultless love
Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."
W.H. Auden, "In Praise of Limestone"
