Welcome to the world of Blanchard Springs Caverns

The link above provides access to teaching resources with a complete packet of cave-related materials, each designed to enrich your group's visit to Blanchard Springs Caverns, a cave best known by the bat and the salamander. Although it seems to be a world apart, Blanchard Springs Caverns is very much connected to our everyday world by the water that we drink and the soil beneath our feet.

The link also includes the full video “The Amazing World Below” which provides an excellent introduction to Blanchard Springs Caverns. Be sure to also check out the FSNature Live video production of "Bringing Caves & Karst to Light." This 40-minute video filmed at Blanchard Springs Caverns connects our everyday lives and this rich underground ecosystem. Learn about cave ecology, geology, hydrology, and conservation, as well as human uses of caves.
