Mammoth Cave National Park asking for public’s help developing plan

MAMMOTH CAVE, Ky.- Officials at Mammoth Cave National Park are asking for the public’s help.

The park is asking for comments on a proposed cave and karst management plan.

The park will hold public meetings on Tuesday, July 16 from 4 p.m.-6 p.m at the Cave City Convention Center and on Thursday, July 18 from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. at the Edmonson County Public Library in Brownsville.
