We provide resources for learning about minimum impact caving, underground ecosystems, and more. We also work tirelessly to protect the world’s underground spaces by promoting responsible caving practices and encouraging cavers to respect the environment and its inhabitants.
We believe in fostering a welcoming environment for cavers of all levels. Whether you're a seasoned explorer or a curious novice, our experienced members are here to share their knowledge, provide guidance, and ensure that every caving expedition is not just an adventure, but a safe and memorable journey.
Join us in our quest to unearth the extraordinary. From breathtaking formations to the camaraderie forged in the darkness, Pittsburgh Grotto is more than a caving organization—it's a community bound by the thrill of discovery and a deep appreciation for the subterranean world.
Explore with us, learn with us, and become part of the legacy of exploration that defines the Pittsburgh Grotto experience.
