Glove Pit Preserve

At the 1995 SCCi Annual Meeting in Huntsville, Alabama, Bill Varnedoe and Carl Craig announced that Cavers Incorporated, a non-profit organization located in Huntsville, would turn over its assets, including Glove Pit, to the Southeastern Cave Conservancy. Cavers Inc. was formed by a group of Alabama cavers in the mid 1980’s to accept the donation of Glove Pit from a landowner concerned about liability. The SCCi board accepted the donation and expressed its appreciation for the pioneering work done by Cavers Inc.
