The 2016 production team is developing a number of extra events that will be held during the convention.
NSS Historical Initiative
In operation since 1941, the NSS is in serious need of an institutional timeline of our own historical accomplishments.
We're working on a large conservation-themed public mural that will be donated to the Ely Renaissance Society in 2016.
White Pine Speleo-Fest
The opening Saturday of our convention will feature a large festival in downtown Ely dedicated to cave conservation! This free event is open to the public.
Special Event Station
The NSS 75th Anniversary Convention will be host to the amateur radio special event station N5S.
Located just south of Ely, Nevada, Cave Lake State Park offers outstanding recreational opportunities. It features a 32-acre reservoir and provides excellent trout fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, camping and picnicking.
The 4,500-acre park is at an elevation of 7,300 feet in the Schell Creek Range adjacent to the Humboldt National Forest. Its name is derived from the several caves in the surrounding limestone.
