Other Cave Activities

The next volunteer workday at Goodwin Sinkhole will most likely be in early June. If you would like to add your name to the volunteer email list, please send an email to the Goodwin Restoration Manager. We will send an email blast when the next workday is scheduled.

With the heavy rainfall the end of April and the beginning of May, the sinkhole filled three times and has had to drain more than 1o million gallons of water. The water in the sinkhole and cave is receding slowly because the water level in the surrounding creeks is still high.
