Welcome to the San Joaquin Valley Grotto of the National Speleological Society.

We are a group of cavers in the San Joaquin Valley of Callifornia. Our group is family friendly and offers training in both horizontal and vertical caving.  We have members that are instructors in cave rescue and that are involved in cave research. If you would like to learn how to protect cave resources and cave safely come join us.

The grotto meets in the back meeting room of REI at River Park in Fresno, California. The meeting starts at 7:30PM on the third Thursdays of the month. You don't need to be a member to attend. The meetings are where we plan our trips, and have a program about caving.
