Conservation

One of the three pillars of the BCCS' mission is to promote the conservation of caves and karst in and around the Burnsville Cove.

To fulfill that mission, we purchase and otherwise manage caves in the area to protect the irreplaceable resources and habitat. We organize an annual conservation project each April in celebration of Earth Day.

The Burnsville Cove Conservation Site has been designated as one of the seven "Significant Karst Areas" in Virginia by the Natural Heritage Program of the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation
