PEEC Presents Expedition Caving Basics, Tuesday, April 30 from 7 – 8 p.m. at Mesa Public Library
Come hear what expedition caving is all about! Caver Beth Cortright will provide details, pictures, and video of a typical caving expedition where a small team of highly trained cavers spend about one week underground. During this time, the group lives and works together inside the cave. Based out of a camp, teams travel to predetermined areas in the cave every day to map it within a few degrees of error. The end goal can be related to geology, biology, hydrology, pure exploration, and many other information-seeking sciences. Beth will address topics pertaining to an extended stay underground, where everything from cooking meals to using the restroom is complicated by the fragile cave environment. Beth will also display examples of the caving gear necessary for an expedition.
