Individuals and entities that would like additional information on Texas's underground resources can
request information from the TSS; we support safe and responsible caving,
cave science, educational initiatives, and conservation.
For current information on TSS events and on events in the Texas caving community, please consult the TSS News link for
current news and the Calendar link for announcements of events.
This web site offers an overview of the TSS, its holdings, its projects, and what the Texas caves and karst resources mean to the state.
It provides links to short descriptions and pictures of very famous Texas caves,
an introduction of the state’s karst geology, links to local caving organizations,
and to additional resources that can help you find out more about caves and karst.
The TSS has its own publishing program, offering publications that include public information for those newly interested
in caves, regional and county cave reports, and technical reports published in conjunction with
the Texas Memorial Museum.
All publications are edited by cave scientists and explorers affiliated with the TSS,
and all profits
from sales support future publications and our ongoing data collection and archiving efforts.
The TSS is a volunteer organization that welcomes your participation in supporting the goals and mission of the organization.
The most important way you can help is by submitting information about previously unknown caves or the current status of known caves.
To facilitate this, the site offers a convenient data submission form.
Any information you provide will be used to update our master database files. The TSS has provisions to keep
data confidential when necessary, to protect
both owners and cave resources.
Other donations of cave-related materials are also welcome. Please contact us (see the donations page
on this site), and we can help you decide where your materials might best be placed.
If you have questions, suggestions, or would like to participate in
TSS activities, please contact us.
