WHITE-NOSE SYNDROME has now been confirmed
in multiple Indiana caves, including those owned by the IKC. Cave closure efforts appear to have been
ineffective to prevent spread of the disease. On that basis the IKC executive board has decided not to renew
WNS-related access restrictions for the caves under our management. However, Robinson Ladder Cave will continue
to be closed during winter months to protect hibernating Indiana bats.
Please continue to employ current
both before and after caving.
