If you're a new caver, or interested in finding out what it's
all about, your best bet is to link up with an established caving
organization. You can learn all about caving from the WSS, and
join on trips. There are two chapters in Wisconsin - one in Green
Bay and the other in Madison, and you can contact them here.
