Gala Celebration Planned

The Lava Beds Capital Campaign wishes to extend its sincere thanks to all of the donors who are helping make this vision a reality. Without your support we could only continue to dream.

As a token of our appreciation, the Capital Campaign will hold a gala dinner to dedicate the Research Center when it is completed. Everyone contributing at the Contributor Level or above will be invited.

Donors who have earned their place on the "Dripstone Wall" are noted with a *. Join them by making your donation today.

Frozen in Time

When hot gases flow through an existing lava tube, they melt the surfaces creating a glass like glazing. This example of reglazing is in Post Office Cave, which is closed to the general public to protect both it and would be explorers.
