Fun Facts

The limestone that visitors walk through during a visit to the Caves was deposited as layers of mud and silt during the Ordovician time period, between 400 and 500 million years ago, before the development or evolution of fish and long before dinosaurs.

Bats are rarely seen in the caves during the summer, but visit during the last week in September and first two weekends in October to see some early hibernators.
