The SCCi and the Birmingham Water Works Board (BWWB) entered the Anderson Cave Preserve Cooperative Management Agreement in May 2007 to reduce unauthorized entry and potential liability of caves within its watershed. The SCCi will study and help to protect the endangered species that may be present. To request a permit to visit the cave, you’ll need to review the SCCi Cave Visitation Policy and fill out our WNS Questionnaire.

Support the SCCi! Buy a Piece of a Cave Preserve! Your donation will be used to pay for all of the wonderful cave preserves we have recently purchased. You may select a specific preserve and you’ll receive a thank-you gift of your choice. To provide ongoing support, please consider signing up as a Sustaining Member. Our sustainers give us the monthly income we need to pay for our caves and to purchase new caves. You may also make a general donation to support our work across the southeast. We are able to purchase caves we all love because of YOUR support. Help us buy even more amazing caves in the future!
