WKU researchers participating in Mammoth Cave symposium Feb. 14-15

“Celebrating the Diversity of Research in the Mammoth Cave Region” is the theme of a research symposium Feb. 14-15 at the Rotunda Room of the Mammoth Cave Hotel.

The symposium, the 10th in 22 years, will feature more than 60 presentations (posters and talks) covering a variety of natural resource, cultural, historical, archeological, educational and social science research activities from the Mammoth Cave area.

The event is sponsored by the Mammoth Cave International Center for Science and Learning, the Cave Research Foundation, and WKU’s Hoffman Environmental Research Institute, and is hosted at Mammoth Cave National Park.  The event is free and open to the public.

“Twenty-four universities will be represented, and five federal agencies,” said Dr. Chris Groves of the Hoffman Institute. “Western Kentucky University faculty, staff and students contributed to 17 of the presentations.”

The Mammoth Cave International Center for Science and Learning is a partnership between Mammoth Cave National Park and WKU.

“We are very pleased to be able to host an event of this caliber,” said Sarah Craighead, superintendent of Mammoth Cave National Park. “Mammoth Cave is thought to be the most studied karst area in the world, but there is still much more to learn.”
