The next MCKC meeting will be at our Berome Moore Cave Preserve near Perryville, MO on October 15th at about 1pm. On the 14th will be project caving work deep in the Moore Cave System as well as surface work at our Pot of Gold Preserve nearby. On the Pot of Gold property there are some sinkholes with junk in them that need to be cleaned up and we plan to have 150 native trees to plant across the property. If you can dig a hole and plant a tree, we could use volunteers to help at the Pot of Gold Property.The meeting is open to current, dues paying members. RSVP by emailing for more details.
