About the Vermont Cavers’ Association

Vermont Cavers' Association

The Vermont Cavers’ Association, a Grotto (chapter) of the National Speleological Society, is an organization composed of cavers and other individuals interested in conserving, locating, exploring and researching caves in Vermont. Holding quarterly meetings, the VCA works to address the issues of cave access and landowners relations, conservation of surface and sub-surface resources, and safe caving practices.

Meetings are usually held at 9:30am on the third Sunday of January, April, July, and October at the LVPS/Leahy Center Building in the hospital complex in Rutland, Vermont (dates and locations may change; check for updates on the Facebook page or email us to ask about the next meeting date). The building is behind the Rutland Regional Medical Center and can be accessed from Cold River Road. The meeting room may change but is posted on the daily scheduled inside the building.

Membership in the Association is open to any interested person. Membership costs $8 per year or $20 for three years for individuals, and $12 per year or $30 for three years for a family membership. If you’re interested in joining the VCA, please contact us by e-mail to attend our next meeting, or download our updated membership form and mail it to the treasurer: VCA membership form
