I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent in Bucker, Trap Door, King/Queen and Little Blair, Bee Tree and other caverns on Dick’s property but it has been a life time ago. I only recently became aware that Dick donated the property to the National Speleological Society in 2005 and it is now the Richard Blenz Nature Conservancy. I cannot tell from the site how many of the caverns are covered by the current property but hopefully all of them.
It was a story of the local Girl Scouts working on cleaning up the graffiti that even brought it to my attention. I remember a summer just a few moons back sleeping under the stars in the meadow. Even then it was a BIG/CIG clean up weekend – a bunch of “cavers” crawling around dragging empty sandbags picking up trash, then hauling them out to put into a dumpster donated by the highway department.
That had to have been the early 90′s anyway?
