White Nose Syndrome

Caves and Mines Are Closed on the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests.

All caves and mines on National Forest lands except for Blanchard Springs Caverns are closed to the public to prevent and slow the spread of White Nose Syndrome, a condition that is killing hundreds of thousands of bats throughout the northeastern United States and recently confirmed in Arkansas.
