NSS 75th Anniversary Convention

About the NSS


The National Speleological Society is the largest organization in the world dedicated to the study and exploration of caves.

For nearly 75 years, the society has promoted safe and responsible caving practices, effective cave and karst management, speleology, and conservation. Our members are bound together by their love of caves and caving and their desire to learn about the underground wilderness and protect it for future generations.

In July of 2016, the NSS will celebrate its 75th anniversary in Ely, Nevada, USA.
