Spring Cave (South Fork) May Close To Protect Bats

While none of the caves in the Rocky Mountain Region have known cases of white-nose syndrome (WNS), bats in the eastern US are dying from it. To prevent the spread of this disease, which could be caused by cavers and their equipment, the Forest Service recommends that you de-contaminate your equipment and clothing before caving and report unusual bat behavior. More information on their website.

Geocaching InMeeker | Spice up your Sunday drive.

Geocaching is a relatively new idea, starting at the beginning of this century. It is a new way to enjoy the great outdoors with family and friends. Using a simple GPS receiver, the goal is to find hidden treasure caches. There are about 7 caches within a couple of miles from town, and there are many more up the White River, down Piceance Creek, and around other beautiful areas around Meeker.
