This is part of a 120-page cave reference guide for Meramec State Park, which I wrote in the winter of 2000-2001. The park, in the Missouri Ozarks, contains 45 known caves, including a large show cave, Fisher Cave. Three sections here cover the cave geology, cave biology, and cultural history of the Meramec area. Please keep in mind that the guide was written for state park naturalists, not the general public, and I cannot provide copies. Unfortunately, the guide's 45 diagrams, maps, and photographs take up too much space to be included on this website.
