Join professional project caver Ray Keeler as he shares remarkable photos from Lechugilla Cave, arguably one of the most spectacular caves in the world. Learn about the fantastic discoveries in this cave which make it one of the longest and deepest caves in America.

Ray has made 27 trips into Lechugilla Cave in New Mexico… The shortest trip 12 hours… the longest trip 7 days (168 hours), eating and sleeping in the cave.

Lechugilla is 50+ miles and still going! The photos he will share with us in this pristine cave are unlike any you have ever seen before. The cave is so delicate that cavers remove their boots when venturing into magnificent new discoveries.

THIS CAVE WILL NEVER BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC SO IF YOU WANT TO SEE IT, YOU HAVE TO COME TO THE MEETING!

Ray is a member of the National Speleological Society (NSS) where he was the Executive VP (1997 – 2000) Administrative VP (2007 – 2010) and director (1994 – 1997). He is currently President, Arizona Regional Association of the National Speleological Society, and President of the Central Arizona Grotto, NSS. He has conducted international expeditions to map and study caves in Mexico (7), Jamaica (5), Korea, and Belize (7).

This is one meeting you definitely don't want to miss!
