Save Millerton Cave


Save Millerton Cave

The purpose of this "Petition" is to bring attention to the plight of America's most unique granite cave system, andto try to protect it from destruction. You can help!

The MillertonLake Cave System is perhaps the world's best example of a granite cave created by the process of corrasion. It is almost a mile long, and its beauty and uniqueness are unmatched. A year-round stream runs through the cave, and has created many deep pools of water, small waterfalls, and amazing formations, all carved out of solid granite rock!

Unfortunately, the Bureau of Reclamation has proposed a second dam site, not far from the existing Friant Dam at the Millerton Lake Reservoir in Fresno County, California. This new dam site would be located atTemperance Flats, which if built, would flood the San Joaquin River Gorge and the Millerton Lake Cave System forever!

We are opposed to the destruction of Millerton Cave... Please help us, and sign our "Petition" below,for the protection of the MillertonLake Cave System.

Thankyou!
